Enjoyed at Pizza Plant Transit, improving bottle selection here with what’s a little off the beaten track. This one is all malts and bitterness, fortunately both are tasty and balance themselves, so decent beer for the style. Passable appearance, aroma, mouthfeel.

Medium body with a resiny hops character that has floral and earthy notes, plus some malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left behind. Above average overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz brown bottle. No sign of a date.
It pours slightly dark for th style, it is an orangeish/reddish/copperish brown with golden highlights. The head is large and off-white, it is frothy and takes a while to recede leaving some decent lacing.
The smell is caramally, boozy, and pretty hoppy as well. It has a bit of citrus and pine in there that smells candied with the sweetness this beer carries in the smell.
The taste is a bit weak for a dipa. It has lots of grain and malt flavors, a hit of caramel and some smooth nicely flavored hops that don’t provide much bitterness over the top of all that. My main qualm is that it is a bit watery.
It is merely okay, one of the lesser DIPAs in Wisconsin. Very drinkable though, if you want a summer DIPA that you can just suck down on a hot day this would work.
