7/24/17 - Newport Brewery. Draft into pint glass. Pours a brilliant gold, light carbonation, small head and no retention. but lacing is very good. Aroma is piney hops and heavy citrus, tropical and resinous. Taste is less bitter than I expected for a DIPA. Hoppy, grapefruit and slight sweetness. Good IPA, worthy of it world class rating.

Strong west coast IPA but with all these new micro breweries popping up really won't go out of my way for pliney
