It's a solid double IPA, more of a classic East coast/Northeast before it was all New England juicy style...

Some pretty good hop aromas and flavors, some citrus grapefruit, pine resin, floral aromas. A solid malt base gives it a full body, with some caramel sweetness supporting the big bitterness.

Worth trying!

Underwhelming, but my roommate liked it so maybe it's just me.

Fruity pebbles. Alcohol esters. Pretty malty. Pine, resin, grapefruit pith, coconut and alcohol. Super dry and bitter. unbalanced. Not terrible but not really outstanding. If they dialed down the alcohol, this would be much better.

I believe about a month of age and it's super malty...almost no hop bitterness. Not getting any of the floral characteristics. Hopefully just a bad batch, will try again hoping for better.

Average Dipa disappointing. Heavy malt taste borderline overpowering. Very little hop taste and average mouthfeel. Will not seek out again was expecting much more
