Second time I have enjoyed this brew, first time reviewing.

For a DIPA this is a strong choice for its drinkability at 8%. Overall I would choose others due to the overpowering citrus flavors and someone lingering aftertaste of the beer. All in all a good DIPA and even better if you enjoy citrus/grapefruit characteristics.

Light copper color with an inch of creamy light tan resting on top. Light lacing. The aroma is a burst of aggressive citrus hops with some underlying light malt as a background note. The taste is a burst of citrus hops. I had to do a double take. No, this isn't orange juice. There's light malt at the back of the palate. The mouth is moderately carbonated, lightly sticky, and resinous.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a coffee mug. Bottled 28 April 2016.

Malty, translucent orange-brown with creamy head.
It smells delightfully rich and hoppy, presaging the malty body, but with such pungent and pleasant aroma.
Almost too sweet / strong, but hey, you signed up for a DIPA didn't ya? Loads of hops, mostly of the earthy and piny variety. Endtaste is full, robust, not dry.
Overall, a solid if not differentiable or stunning DIPA. Would have again.

On tap at GSA. Pours a copper, ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Nuances of fresh pine and hops apparent in both the nose and on the tongue. Easily drinkable. Decent stab.

On draught. Domed sun gleaned copper tone. Aroma is malt biscuit and citrus with overripe pineapple. Fresh pine cone forest. Taste is biscuity with just enough malt, hop and citrusy. Mouthfeel is creamy and hop sniping in. Spider lacing sticking. I really dig the lighter side of this DIPA as most tend to be syrupy and "thick". I always say tap beats a bottle anyday. Paired this up tonight with Buzzard Bay Ma oysters. Would definitely get again. Solid pick.
