3.75/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Nose is dank, floral with light fruity notes (tropical?)

Palate is extremely bitter with floral and pine flavours and very light citrus notes coming though. A fairly big caramel sweetness adds balance but the bitterness is massive and lingers considerably in the finish. A little more sweetness than I like in my DIPAs.

3.19/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Amber body. Big off-white head. Good retention.

Smell - Lots of caramel malts. Some grapefruit hops. Smells very sweet.

Taste - Grapefruit hops. Huge caramel sweetness. Amber malts and toffee sugars. Bitterness builds into the finish, which cuts the sweetness a little bit.

Mouthfeel - Heavy for an IPA. Almost a creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Way too sweet for me. Big, malty DIPA. Not my thing.
