Deep copper, can already tell it will be maltier than I prefer a DIPA to be. Very earthy / piney nose that continues on the palate with heavy malt sweetness. Needs to be drier IMHO.

Too sweetened but drinkable. Hopped well.

The beer comes in a rich red amber.

The aroma has big sweetness, resinous pine with a hint of citrus.

The flavor hits of a big sugary sweetness that sticks on the lips, but not too heavy of malt. Lots of spicy hops and resinous pine. Hints of citrus and grapefruit.

A big sweet and sticky DIPA, if that is for you.
