Pours a clear amber-orange with a 2-finger white head. Smells of resin, floral, dough, citrus. Taste is bitter and mildly sweet, citrus & spruce dominate with a milder bready-malt follow-up. Slight yeasty spiciness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a orange golden color with a two finger eggshell foam hat that settles quickly leaving some lacing trails.... great citrus aromas of grapefruit, navel oranges and a touch of earthy honey malts. On the palate there is a big slightly earthy sweet malt backbone that carries the the fruity driven hop flavors to the front with a well balanced finish.

I love the concept of Digital IPA as much for its taste, as for the open source philospophy of its brewers. Digital retains a strong, hoppy body whilst wholeheartedly reminding me of lollies (in the southern hemisphere) or penny chews and possibly candyfloss (in the northern hemisphere). The malty palate exudes grassy, tarmac and gravel tones. Maybe seaweed pops up, but this could also be the environment in which these brewers are emersed. A wild, pure environment that enables them to spring forth original brews on which they will continue to build their name.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, lemon, and pine hops with sweet caramel and biscuit malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and tropical hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and grassy hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, piney, and lightly spicy hops with some resiny bitterness and some sweet biscuity malts.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a bitter and lightly dry and sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice hoppy IPA with some nice New Zealand hops and good overall balance.
