A little bitter and not enough flavor

For a beer that I'm drinking 6mo. old from bottled on date, it holds up pretty good. Aroma is gone, but taste is still sweet, hoppy and nicely balanced. Would like to revisit a fresh bottle sometime.

A solid DIPA here, but nothing unicorn magical about it. It looks the part, slightly opaque, good lacing. Smell/aroma is spot on, but not a ton of it, wish it had more personality. Taste was a bit of a let down, and it could be that another previous DIPA shined a bit more than this. Feel was spot-on, for the style, but overall didn't give me more than a "solid" 4 impression.
Not sure I'd go back to it or seek it out. So many good DIPAs out there - this one was good, well made, but didn't have any kind of ...personality?

I got a can of this off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had faint citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence at the end. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

I picked up a couple of bottles in a make your own six pack at Wegmans. I always like to try a new DIPA and have enjoyed other beers from this brewery. This beer was lacking citrus for me. It was mostly biscuit and malty and almost boozy aftertaste. My bottle was 6 months old so maybe not the freshest. Nice looking amber and was pretty easy to drink.

12 oz can, canned 6/5/18. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a small bubbly white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is very subdued - some grassy hops with some malt and fruit.

The flavor is a bit subdued too. Cracker malts and a little fruit with some slightly harsh bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very subdued DIPA.

Pours clear copper with a whispy dish soapy head that leaves a dribble of lace trails behind. Pine sap, grapefruit, pineapple, caramel cake in the aroma. A brash hoppiness in the first sip - pinneapple, white grapefruit, herbal. A warming booziness follows suit, as does a butterscotch, toasted caramel maltiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Moderate bitterness and some alcohol heat in the finish.

A decent DPA, but could use a bit more hop aroma and flavor and a bit less booziness. Still worth a try.
