I loved this DIPA. Superb hop bite, great balance, orange colored pour and super citrus. On tap.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Good aroma. Lots of hops . Not for me overpowdered with hops. The beer does a good job hiding the high alcohol

Can. Pours a copper color with white head. Piney, grassy, hoppy aromas. Kind of a hop bomb, not a lot of balance.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish gold pour. Nice combination of citrus and pine in the aroma. Hop bitterness balances well with the malt backbone. Relatively clean finish. Nice brew - does a good job hiding the 10%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange-gold, with mid-sized head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is a combination of citrus and pine hops. Pretty crisp, clean mouthfeel. Bitter finish. This isn’t too bad.

Slightly hazy golden pour. Nice floral and citrus nose. Lots of white lacing. mostly bitter in the taste. A little sweet on the finish cancels out some of the bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hop balance is toward the flavor and aroma end of the spectrum, which is a nice to see from this style. I was expecting a resin bomb, nut the bitterness was very smooth. Sweet malt character balanced the hops nicely. A nicely made DIPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to khoffman43! Clear medium orange pour, thick foamy head and an aroma of bitter, herbal, resiny hops. Flavor is dry cedar, mild hops, plenty of malt to help balance the alcohol. Hops aren’t as pronounced as I’d like for a DIPA, but still not too bad. Decent beer, but I probably won’t pick it up in the future since there’s plenty cheaper (and better) options.

Tap. Minimal aroma. Initial taste is murky, middle is well hopped, and finishes with slight sweetness and maltiness.
