4/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 3/30/15; drank 4/4/15 @ the Yarchives.

See-through copper appearance.

HUGE khaki head; frothy lace.

Sweet melon & dried apricot notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

STRONG melon flavor up front; a hint of banana & faint booze heat on the finish.

A melon bomb...super drinkable & quite enjoyable.

3.84/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving: On tap in a sampler
Served: 30 Dec 2015

Appearance: Pours a clear, almost amber color with a light, white crown. Leaves appreciable lacing on the sampler glass.

Smell: The standard sweet maltiness, as expected for the style. The hop notes ranged from piney and citrusy to dank and musty.

Taste: The dank hoppiness in this one just isn't for me. I enjoyed some of the citrus and pine assertions, but the dank, musty hops are keeping me from rating this one higher. One thing I definitely enjoyed about this beer was that it wasn't afraid of being bitter- the dank hops definitely made the IPA more noticeably bitter than other DIPAs I've had, and I feel like this is an important quality in such big beers.

Mouthfeel: Medium high body with medium carbonation.

Overall: A good DIPA, but one with a weird hop balance which is keeping me from rating it higher. While I don't need a "juicy" IPA to enjoy one, dank hops just aren't my jam. A good beer nonetheless, and one I would recommend to hop-heads at the brewery.
