4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong malt backbone, which I always like in a DIPA. Less bitter than I expected. The hops are mainly citrus and tropical fruits with some pine, resin, and floral notes. Not the most complex DIPA, but very enjoyable. Lacks the long, sticky, hop resin aftertaste that you would usually get from this style.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big hop notes, grassy, resinous, pine, some citrusy notes as well, bitter. The malts take backstage, as they should, bready/biscuity. A big sticky IIPA.

nice citrusy nose, elements of spicey orange-peel & bold hops. pours a blaze orange with a off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Taste is really nice w/a zesty hop-zing and a very nice malt balance. The orange zest really stick around. over-all a very tasty Dipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a murky amber orange color with a thick foamy head that lingers nicely and leave great webbing. Aroma is musty citrus, fruit cocktail, and pine. Taste is ok. Sweet fruit juice with a mild bitterness. Pine in the finish. Odd aftertaste. Possibly an old bottle but not sure. Ok DIPA.
