3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Creamy eggshell head on a mostly clear light amber orange. Lots of herbal, dank, and fruity hoppiness with some malty sweetness sneaking in. flavor is definitely bitter but the bottle Iím working on is a touch sweet and not sure itís the freshest sample... Has a good bit of herbal and citric hops hanging around in the background but just seems muted by a relatively malty sweetness. Medium to thicker body.

What a surprise in this here beer I find, eh. The nose was the first element to bring a sort of smile to me face, full oh fruity and juicy-like hops there was, did I slip and fall into a giant-sized fruit cocktail? These sort of questions seemed fill me brains. Once me lips hit that liquid and it glided across me tongue and down my throat, I was oh so pleasantly happy that it was as far from syrupy and cumbersome as I reckon a dipa could be...lovelinly dry, fruity hop flavors, clean, crisp, whispers of body, probably one of the easiest, cleanest, best drinkin dipas I can wrap my memory around. Exquisite stuff, me likes.

The aroma is very hoppy with some malt. The appearance is light orange gold with a small head. The taste is bitter and astringent with some malt. The palate is average. Overall this is not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Pours a mostly clear, deep golden color with a small white head. The initial blast of the aroma is sweaty, dank, herbal hops, but then a minute passes and itís mostly sweet and malty, with some tangerine citrus. Flavor of herbal hops, citrus peel, sweet malts, and sugar. Medium-bodied, with a dry, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The initial smell made me think itíd be a little better than it was, but still a very solid DIPA.

Thanks to Brad for bringing this bottle to our most-recent tasting. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours a moderate orange-copper color with a good white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a bit of citrus and a bit of bready malt in the background. Not quite integrated and the hops arenít molding and popping like Iíd like. The flavor follows the same track. Decent body with some bitterness through the finish. Decent enough, but the label was likely my favorite part.
