12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a mildly hazy copper color. The head is three fingers high and offwhite in shading, quickly receding to reveal rings of lacing on the glass. Ultimately, the head settles at one finger. S: The hops here are rather spicy and piny, rather than (preferably) citrusy. All this hoppiness is hidden behind a ton of crystal malt - again, not my cup of tea. On the plus side, the nose has little in the way of booze. T: Lots of sweet malt open the flavor profile, with notes of honey, caramel, and toffee. The hop profile here is a bit sneaky, building a mild piny tone on the finish and aftertaste. At the end of the day, though, itís not what Iíd call hoppy by any stretch. Nor is it boozy. It doesnít really excite the taste buds, but I enjoy its balance. M: It starts off with a medium body, but the mildly strong carbonation helps lighten it up some. The finish is dry and resiny; however, itís not overdone. This is quite easy to sip on due to the well-hidden booze and pleasant dryness. O: Itís pleasant and easy going, almost to a fault. I think this would be a good beginner DIPA due to its malty yet balanced nature and great price point. Still, it canít really compete with some of the readily available elites of the style. The booze comes out strongly when it warms up, so drink it colder.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Citrus and some booze come together for a decent IPA. Finishes fairly bitter. Pours orange with ok head and lacing. Average carbonation. Lots of hops, just needs a little better integration. Bottle.

bwa5879 (601) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Mostly clear deep copper orange pour with a half inch of dense white head. Ester-y citrus aroma with some buscuit and rye malt, subtle melon also. Ligh scent overall. Soft carbonation, finish somewhat filmy. Taste has intense bitterness, bright citrus hops, rye and biscuit malt. Alcohol is evident but it still remains an overall light and straightforward DIPA.

A nicely balanced IPA. Definitely has a ton of hops but the key is the biscuity malt balance. Sweet and oily.
