A: 4.0 - Cloudy amber color with a dense, very persistent head.
S: 3.75 - Sticky sweet malt with a fair amount of piny hops.
T: 3.25 - Bitterness is only average, with the dominant flavor being rather sweet malt--a bit odd for a DIPA.
M: 3.0 - Thin bodied, especially for the strength.
O: 2.75 - One of the worst IPAs I've had in recent months.

Pours a copper color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and pine, with mild malt sweetness and grain. Taste on citrus and pine with some malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Decent bitterness and a finish that is quite dry. Medium body, crisp with a bit of tart. Nice beer but more of an IPA than a DIPA.
