3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle pours a clear golden orange with large white head and good lacing. Aroma is full of citrus hops, mango and pine resin. Taste is bitter but thankfully not too dank. There is only a slightly sweet malty backbone in the middle. Body is much lighter than I expected from a DIPA, with average carbonation and a slightly soapy mouthfeel. This one didn’t take as long for me to finish as I thought it might. One of the more refreshing DIPAs I’ve tried, and one I’l come back to.

A nice citrus hoppy aroma hits you when you first open the bottle. There is a good balance between the pine, citrus and hops when it comes to the flavor. This brew is a lot thinner than expected, which is great. I will be stocking up on more of this.

Very hoppy and not at all malty in any sense of the double ipa definition. It isn't super thick, but there is a nice substance to the beer. It has a bit of a bite in the aftertaste and isn't super smooth. Wouldn't order again, but it has satisfied my hop craving.

Poured from 1.6 pf bottle a hazy golden with white head and lacing. Aroma of pine and light citrus, floral. Taste of pine resins and pineapple. Sliky mouthfeel. I liked the lightness of this IPA very much, it was not a citrus bomb at all. One of the better IPA’s I have had In awhile.
