3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Pours almost clear yellow with white fizz. Nice malty aroma of dried leaves, light cereal grains, some earthy fruity hops with peach, orange and pineapple. Starts bigger on hops, a modestly sharp pineapple with a light fresh pine and some earthy dried floral notes but it all falls into a nice malty base. There is also an interesting banana and spice underneath everything once it all falls into that more malty backbone. Has a little German flavor mixed with American ipa. Decent finish and feel, not totally drying with lingering pale malts and earthy hop tones showing just hints of the fruity floral and fresh pine. Enjoyable and nicely priced for a six pack iipa.

Not what I would expect in a DIPA but its kind of different. More straight up IPA flavor - not hops forward as you would expect.
