The look was dark and even like a dipa should be the taste was smooth but hoppy the smell was lacking but it was good. I personally would say it was a good extra IPA but it was a little weak to really call it a dipa. But it still isn't bad.

16 oz pub glass.
Golden.. almost clear. Mildly foamed, settling to a nice layer that retains well. Smell of light malt, rich citrus and what I sensed was a good dose of pine on the nose. Taste was really even for a DIPA.. in that nothing was too strong. The prickly feel was balanced between from first to last drink (see below).. with the bitterness easy going.
Nothing was over-the-top trying to grab my attention. One thing I did find odd, was the first few smells/drinks had an odd aroma of mild mildew, but that was gone after my 2nd or 3rd drink.. replaced by malt? Still learning...

Drinkable hoppy DIPA, with a decent mouthfeel and glass presentation: The foil of malt in the backbone is passable, although I would have preferred a tad more. The one downside though is that it's a bit to "catty," which IMHO, prevents it from being a really good DIPA.
