I am tired of reading ratings of 3.0 4.0 on every damned beer out there except Budweiser.
I have been chasing beer for decades. I am applying this rating to a truly fantastic Double Dry Hopped IPA (draft ) because that's what it is, fantastic. ....
Ignore the 3.5 Trolls who never love anything and grab this for true deliciousness! You will thank me..Venmo great fully accepted ;)

Deep gold leaning toward amber, not quite clear; off-white head a few fingers high, and plenty of lacing left behind... tropical and muted citrus on the nose followed up with a rather unexciting flavor profile - the malts are fairly forward, adding a big body to the mild citrus and resins from the hops... I'd swear I'm picking up banana among the vague tropical impressions, and the citruses are dark and fleshy, but edged with something earthy and dull... Medium-full feel, low carbonation, moderately sweet and mildly bitter... A decent enough DIPA, but didn't do anything special for me...

Local brew from the District. Pours pretty with a big white head and hazy straw body. Nose also fits with citrus and herbal hops and a touch of mango or passionfruit.

The taste is more balanced and relatively mild. Medicinal and herbal hops along with a malty backbone make this a bit of an outlier among DIPAs. No forest of pine or withering bitterness here. Different, but definitely drinkable for 8.0%. Smoother and less carbonated than you usually find the style. A little more bitterness in the finish. Not amazing, but different enough to at least try.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Pale caramel amber body color, with a nice nut brown like appearance. Fairly clear, with a slight reaching three finger off white colored head, but a little tinier than your average DIPA. Good staying power, sort of creamy to soapy like appearance on top.

Good solid simple aroma if a little malty. Touches toasty caramel, a little flour like in quality, but with very little hop aromatics. Not sure where this is going.

Palate takes things down slightly. A very syrupy and sweet tasting mouthfeel, large amounts of thick brown sugar with very little hop bitterness or character. A fleeting amount of faint citrus perhaps, but washes a bit thick and boozy. Good malt bill, and also distinct with touches of nut and biscuit.

Like this malt profile, but the hops on this thing in flavor and aroma are practically non existent.
