I'm clueless as to why this beer has an average BA score of 90+. As someone who solely drinks IPAs, I'm confident in saying it was the worst DIPA I have ever tasted. I don't really know how to explain my experience besides summarizing it: there is absolutely nothing special or intriguing about this beer. It's balanced to the point where it doesn't even taste like an IPA. Not hoppy. Not malty. Just bland. Watered down and underwhelming in every sense of the word.

I'm someone who believes it's blasphemous to pour out a "good" beer without finishing it. But this beer merited a pouring-down-the-drain. I made it halfway though the bottle before giving up (forgive me, beer gods).

OVERALL: There is nothing redeeming about this beer. Utter disappointment in my opinion.
