Featuring Columbus, Chinook, and CTZ hops, and 2-Row, Golden Promise, and rye malts... Pale gold with a faint haze and a big white head that trailed lots of lacing... Aromas of grain and herb, grasses and pine and citrus... Tasted and felt remarkably light - maybe people don't like that in a DIPA (I do) - subtle fruit impressions, mostly of pale citric pith - and earthy grain and mild pine rounding things off... Solid bitterness, smooth and easy-drinking, with a subdued sweetness and clean finish... Really diggin' it... 4/13/17 canning...

Served on draft.
Pours a clear straw color. Not a ton on the nose. Pretty faint pine and citrus. Perhaps some tropical fruit.
Taste is pretty one dimensional and a little thin for a DIPA. Punch of Hop bitternessnamd some lingering pine and citrus notes followed by a slight sweetness. Not a lot of malt. Overall pretty average DIPA...not bad at all, just nothing special.

Canned April 1st. Pours clear straw yellow, goodly amount of foam. Tropical fruity nose with bitter hops. Really bitter and dank hop taste that overwhelms any tropical fruit I got in the smell. Big bread notes from the malt. Good enough mouthfeel, perhaps a bit more carbonation. Pretty average DIPA in my book.

Aromas of perfectly balaced hops and malts. Citrusy and very zesty. Small amount of pine in the aftertaste. Medium amount of hop bitterness. Everything comes together to make a solid IPA

Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter.
Grass, That is the nose and that is the taste. Grass and resiny

Good bready back bone but the mouth feel is a bit light.

Worth having again

T: Follows the nose, pomelo, dryness, & a little lemongrass up front. Mango, dryness. grapefruit & a little onion as this warms. Finshes bready with grapefruit & mango

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation, good balance

Drinks easy, good effort, but there are better local options
