A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a brownish color and a clear consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Decent lacing.

S: A good amount of hops, some citrus, and malt as well. Pretty standard.

T: Tasted of a high amount of hops, citrus (grapefruit, in particular), and a bit of malt as well. A bit too hops-centric (even for a DIPA), but still not a bad flavor.

M: A fairly well-carbonated beer with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is another beer that while competently made, it doesn't necessarily separate itself from the sea of DIPAs out there. Still, worth a look.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Nice honey color,semi cloudy,half finger of off white head, spotty lacing.

While appearance is the high point, the aroma is the low point for me, sweet malt & candied grapefruit/orange peel.

Taste is of caramel, then candied fruit, some decent bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Too many other great IIPAa in the price range for it to stand out for me, but a decent effort that belongs in the "balanced" IIPA category which isn't really my style as I prefer a more hop forward aroma and flavor.

A - pours a light golden copper with 2 fingers of dense near white head. Decent retention, great lacing.

S - Tons of sweet grapefruit and orange. Tons. Slightly peppery/resinous. Sweet but it seems to be more from fruits than malts.

T - Some bitter hops and a wallop of sweet citrus fruits. Dry resinous flavors kick in shortly after and linger through the finish, some sweet caramel malts leak through as well. Aftertaste is relatively tame, somewhat dry resinous bitterness.

M - medium bodied or less. Appropriate carbonation, well done here.

O - somewhat surprised, quite good.
