The look and initial smell don't indicate much about this DIPA but the sweet malty roast and the restrained bitterness balance the ABV very well in my experience of this beer. Very smooth, low carb mouth feel. Smart brew.

My first stab at a Triple C ware.Pours into an impy nonic a clear deep orange infused copper color with a great looking full two finger lighter beige head atop that lasted for quite awhile.Aromas are lighter with sugary sweetness,nutty and even faint chocolate malts mixed in with piney/leafy hops.A nice fuller feel and not over carbonated.Flavors of piney and leafy hops go along with hefty sweetness and mild nuttiness,not a hop bomb by any means here.It's ok but the hop profile needs to be amped up a little bit to make this something to seek out...in my opinion.

Amber body with excellent clarity and a decent head. Strong hop flavor but with lots of balancing malt sweetness, leaving this with low bitterness for style.

Served from tap into a sampler tumbler. Poured red-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pine, pine hop, earth, and spicy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, pine hop, earth, earth hop, and skunky hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. It wasn’t an over-the-top DIPA like I would have hoped for, however it did bring some nice flavors and aromas to the party. Granted there was a huge dominance of hops going on and not a lot of stuff going on to balance them out. This was rather unfortunate. If there was some more sweetness or even citrus going on, this could have been a really solid brew. Glad I got the chance to try it and hopefully they change it up slightly to make a very solid brew in the future. Tick.

A great combo of hops and malt. Sweet, but not cloying. If you like your malty DIPAs, this is a great example.
