3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear orange body with a fluffy white head that settles quickly and leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has tropical notes of citrus fruits, pine and resin but also some maltiness. Taste is quite sweet and leads to a smooth, bitter finish that lasts on the palate. Medium carbonation and rich, oily palate. Decent DIPA but the hops aroma is a bit weak or has subsided over time.

Very light body DIPA with OK bitterness, low hops, average ABV.
i would rate this as an IPA, definitly not a DIPA from a taste point of view, only DIPA by ABV.
