"Our standard Mylar Bags which is hopped with Amarillo, Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado and crushes it with Citra and Mosaic lupulin powders and more Galaxy."
Pours a darker golden orange with a decent haze to the body and a finger of white head.
The smell encompasses the characteristics of pretty much every hop used. Lots of sweet citrus with good dankness and even some cedar and black pepper.
Like the aroma, the taste has a big influence from sweet fruits like blood oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit. I'm getting lemon, but it's in the form of lemon candy or lemon Jolly Rancher and not a lemon peel or zesty flavor. A bit of a grassy note mixes things up, but on the back end it switches back to the citrus and sweeter notes. A grainy, cereal, oat taste is felt throughout with some bready malts.
Mouthfeel is full with a creamy feel. No alcohol to be found and it is very drinkable for 8.5%.
DDH Mylar Bags delivered a diverse hop profile with tons of flavor and a smooth feel. You can taste all the hops used which led to a complex IPA that didn't rely on just strictly being a juice bomb. This DIPA has depth and high drinkability. Count me in!
