On tap at Hop & Hound in Bothell, Washington, from a new keg. Served in a snifter.

Look- Not much to look at. Nice golden crystal clear color, almost non existent off white head, minimal lacing and very little carbonation active in the glass.

Smell- Dank, melon, a little citrus and malt, herbaceous.

Taste- Melon, strawberry, tropical fruit, dank and finishes with citrus and hops, bitter. Bitterness lingers in the mouth and the alcohol is undetectable.

Feel- Very light drinking for a medium bodied beer. Can't taste the alcohol so it goes down very easily.

O- Solid offering from Breakside, very much a sipping beer, a few of these will have your head spinning.

I had this on-tap in a mug at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a little touch of haze and a thin layer of ivory foam atop.

Smell: light aroma of citrusy hops atop a sweetish malt base. Not especially complex, but nice enough.

Taste: citrusy and mildly dank hops along with a pretty sweet malt; it's a standard DIPA flavor profile. Bitterness is smooth but moderately heavy; my tongue definitely feels this one at the end. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and good creaminess. Good for the style.

Overall: this beer is a little bit more sweet and syrupy than I'd like, but overall it's not a bad DIPA.
