3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours bright golden with thick creamy head. Aroma is juicy floral hops. Taste is kinda flat piney and floral bitter hops. None of those great citrus notes in the aroma come through in the taste at all - weird! Thin body to stand up to all those hops. It’s been a while but I remember liking their Pilot series DIPA better than this. Something just a bit off here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear copper color with a medium sized off white head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have resin and citrus hops that favor grapefruit, toasted malts, mild caramel, moderate bitterness, good beer, but nothing stands out from any other DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber light retention. Aromas caramel, pineapple, citrus, spicy hop, pine. Flavors pine, citrus, caramel and pineapple. Taste alot like the dipa’s I’ve created. It has that intermingled complexity where nothing really stands out. The flavors are hard to separate in the complexity. Medium to high sweetness. Quickly forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit one dimensional for a DIPA: from the aroma through the taste and to the finish, it was mostly dry, pine/resin bitterness with a long, bitter finish. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Overall, the taste was more of a typical NW IPA than a DIPA. But if you want your bitter/hoppy IPA experience with more alcohol, this is your beer.
