People giving this beer a 4 need to try a Sculpin or Racer 5. Color is a nice dark amber. The beer has very little bouquet. An IPA should introduce itself through the nose. The first sip give a distinct dry hop bite with zero malt follow up. It reminds me of the English IPAs of old. "Balance" is not a word I would use here. Disappointed.

I want to like this beer. It's almost like a double amber to me. Not much hoppiness and a lot of malt. Not a great double IPA.

On tap at Hopdoddy’s Burger Bar in Austin, TX.

This one pours a slightly hazy reddish amber, with a small white head and lots of lacing.

This smells super malty and not much else, with slight mustiness and lots of caramel soaked bread.

This is not very good, unfortunately. It’s too malty with barely any hop flavor other than vague stale bitterness.

This is kind of overly sweet, and too thick, with a normal level of carbonation.

This is just a poorly constructed DIPA that I can’t recommend.

Hazy, medium amber in color, 1 finger thick creamy head, wonderful retention. Leaves a very thick lace along the glass.

Hops and some citrus peel aroma, not very strong in aroma though.

Not much sweetness or malt character, just hops resiny and a little citrus peel flavor.

Light in body, pretty smooth, has a refreshing quality to it

Overall not a bad beer, just a little one note.
