look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a hazy golden color with one cm of white head, leaves behind a delicate lace

S: sweet and malty up front, then the nose is hit with some piney notes of hops, followed by a faint yeast, almost banana like, certainly fruity

T: Sweet up front as well, but the hops take over quick, as it sits in on the tongue the hops develop further, the piney notes take over with slight citrus, leaves a very strong bitterness on the finish

M: medium body, great carbonation

O: a great DIPA, one of my favorite examples of the style

A- clear orange and a little hazy looking with big fluffy head

S-Grapefruit and hops! some oily hop aroma comes though but holy hops!

T-Bitter knockout with this one. not for the inexperianced ale drinker.

M- tacky and clean. but lingers all the down and after that

O- pretty darn good for a DIPA but the price is hefty so i wont be seeking out on the regular. but glad i had xmas bonus to try.
