2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
I dont see how this is a DIPA. Cant even call It close to a IPA. It has a nice color. Lows carbonation and lots of foam when poured stumps me. But whose ass do I have to kick to make this better. Took two sips and poured it down the sink.

Very hazy amber beer, small white head. Smooth softish palate. Semi dry. Quite a lot of lactose sweetish malt in which sit moderately bitter hops. A little orange and mild piney - grassy bitterness. Finishes dry with a mild bitter linger. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from the BevMo. Pours a color between honey and sugar-free maple syrup. Decent amount of foam, maybe a finger and a half at first, fading to just a half after about 2-3 minutes. Aroma is all sweet malt and... sweet malt... and apple juice. Taste is underwhelming and sweet of malt and apple juice. That itís even called a DIPA is kind of a joke... Carbonation is weak, body is thin, mouthfeel malingering... If I brewed this I would be mad at me. Not a good job by Ass Kisser. Iím not sure whose ass you would use this to kiss, but not mine. I donít love it. I wonít pour it, but thatís just because Iím stubborn.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a hazy orange color with a medium thin foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grainy malt, hops and citrus. Medium body with flavors of mildly bitter hops, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is caramel malt up front with a short hoppy aftertaste. Not really a IIPA in my opinion, slightly above average for the style though if that is what they are calling it.

From BandC. Typical for the style but the hops were a bit more medicinal and herbal than others. Sweetness a little turned up too. Serving: Bottle

12 oz bottle This was given to me by a friend. the ale poured a very frothy big head with the color of light orange. There was a bitter, fruity taste. The medium body ale had lively carbonation. The higher alcohol was not noticed but not my most favorite D/IPA. It needed more complexity then just the sweet malty flavors. The finish was of fruity hops.
