Maybe I've had too many IIPAs lately because they all seem to be about the same. On this one, the hops go more to traditional piney than citrus. The malt is good but not super heavy sweet. Middle of the road double for me

3.81/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a very rich dark copper color, very clear, and very thin lacing, carbonation is extremely low.

S - Nose is very faint with some pine and caramel malt.

T - Some sweet caramel malt up front followed with a hint of light tropical fruit in the middle and finishes with an aggressive bitter pine/citrus bite that lingers for a very long time at the end, some alcohol presence but otherwise extremely well hidden.

M - Medium body, dry finish, light pricklies on the tongue.

O - Well balanced through most of the sip, aggressively bitter at the very end, and barely detectable ABV makes this beer dangerously drinkable but deceptive. The very weak nose brings the overall rating down a bit.
