look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: orange gold with thin white head and very cloudy

Aroma: piney and biscuity with slight tropical citrus fruit hints, strong aroma

Taste: very hoppy with strong pine and citrus explosion of flavor. Just enough malt to give a backbone to the beer, but this is unquestionably a DIPA. The hops really shine

Mouthfeel: full body but not chewy just a very full taste. Medium carbonation.

Overall: a good, not great, DIPA. Definitely held back by cloudy appearance and lack of malt character. But the beer definitely pals a punch with the american hops and provides a slight alcohol note on the finish.
