Aroma and taste, hoppy, light malts, pine, some spices in the finish. Damn bitter for a DIPA, was expecting more malt balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour was hazy orange with white head, while the other DIPA was a citrus bomb this was a pine and grass bomb, big, big notes of pine and grass led into hints of tangerine, some nice biscuit and toffee in there as well. Taste was pine, and more pine, some slight sweet tangerine led into toffee and caramel notes, led into another wave of pine bitter that was relentless and lasting bitter on the palate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
GABF 09- one of my favorite DIPA’s at the fest. Pours a very light golden yellow- slight hazy with a nice frothy white head- nice lace. Aroma is juicy citrusy hops, grapefruit pine and tons of very fresh weed- with lots of hairs, resin and crystals- oily. Sappy and oily flavor, with almost a dusty hop resin you get at the end of a 1 lb bag of hops- dusty in a good fresh way- piny grapefruit, and tropical- hardly any real malt noticed - finishes dry and very bitter- but awesome. Nice!
