Very smooth run of the mill DIPA. Color as expected dark brown orange with a nice ring of lace after settling. Smell is more potent than their other IPA's very piney and citrus like. Taste is good bitter with some lingering bitterness but nothing exciting still it's rather good mend of hop to malt ratio with the gravity should give it some merit. Drinks like the regular IPA light to medium making this somewhat dangerous.

Overall nothing I can get again but a decent DIPA and very affordable at around 2 a single probably less for the sixer.

Maybe I'm feeling generous. This is a nice double, but I recently had a few that were far superior.

It is deep yellow with thin head. The aroma is rich and dark. The taste is hoppy and malty, but more balanced than many of the style. That is not a good thing, but it makes it pretty drinkable.

Recommended for a taste of midnight sun.

Color of clear copper with a moderate off-white head.

Smell is grapefruit and passionfruit, yet catty.

Taste is catty pine and biscuit, pretty bitter.
