4.29/5  rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Clear golden amber brew with fine-grained white foam in the Ciney snifter. Sudsy, melts in your mouth carbonation. Tremendous lime, avocado, green melon aroma. There is a nicely balanced amount of sweetness and a pleasurable amount of malt.

Flavors of cantaloupe, apricot, and that citrusy delight that the right amount of Citra hops brings. Sweet finish with a sharp note and whiff of alcohol.

This is one of my favorite DIPAs. I first had it in 2016, and then they had a poster for it in fall of 2017. This year's batch was canned September 27, 2018. So I buy a few four-packs to be able to enjoy it longer. From the 16 oz can purchased at the brewery taproom. For some reason I love the label artwork. You can peel it off the can and stick it anywhere. I think I'm going to try it as a bumper sticker.

Man, I SO wanted to love this beer! With all of the new breweries popping up in town, I figured, sooner or later, somebody was gonna finally make a really good, super aromatic, uber-hoppy, double IPA. Well, IMO that still hasn't happened. I love Wander, a super cool place for sure, but at $15 for a 4 pack, I was bummed.

Don't get me wrong, this is a nice looking beer, with a decent aroma, but it's lacking the big hoppy floral attributes of so many of the big DIPA's coming out nowadays. Overall, the taste is just average for the style.

3.85/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Chuckanut Brewery Octoberfest mug.
No date on the can just "Bellingham Brewed" on the bottom.

Appearance: Light amber body, 1/2 fingers worth of head. Plenty of lacing left in the mug.

Aroma: Plenty of citrus, mainly grapefruit along with some pine.

Taste: Follows suit with the nose: Grapefruit and pine, spicy on the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium, decent amount of carbonation; a little hint of that alcohol as it warms

Overall: A tasty DIPA. Easy to drink while cold as it warms that alcohol is a little more pronounced. But this is a nice hop bomb for sure!

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

16 oz can stamped BELLINGHAM BREWED with no date. Poured into 19 oz DFH IPA Glass

A — Pours a deep orange hue with a puffy off-white head. Great lacing left behind.

S — Smell is strongly of citrus, grapefruit, pine, melons.

T — Boozy and punchy notes of citrus, pine, grapefruit, pineapple.

M — Warming and slightly sticky.

O — Nicely done, I still prefer Wanders less hoppy options as they seem to do a better job with those. Their hoppy beers always seem to leave something to be desired.
