Double IPAs should be a luxurious journey into multiple layers of hops flavors. Intense, interesting, delicious. It should be all these things. Unfortunately, being only one out of three IS bad. Rhizing Bines offers extreme bitterness without the subtleties that make DIPAs so delicious. It is just bitter, without to much flavor differentiation in the types of bitter. There is no interest to it. I suppose that this happens when one is always experimenting, but I expect more from DFH. Lemon pith bitter from beginning to end with no other flavors does not cut it.
