look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark amber orange in appearance and pours a pretty off white head that dissipates quickly.

Smells like a hop bomb! I'm enticed! Strong hops on the nose, slight hint of lemon peel, and barely a dash of malt for no real attempt at balance.

Taste is bitter and straight hops all the way, not bad though, slight citrus to note as well.

Mouthfeel is crisp and bitter.

Overall a very tasty DIPA and the brewery is within driving distance so that ain't bad.
