I have managed to get my palate to enjoy and even look forward to DIPAs. Now along comes this one touting itself as a triple IPA Oh, what the hell. Lets give it a try Fear not the hops, right?
Devil Dancer poured into the glass hazed and somewhere between dark amber and burnt orange in color. The head was a finger and a half of yellow-beige dense creamy foam. A curtain of lace covered the glass and marked every level change, quite nice.
The smell was a mix of fruity sweetness, pine resin, grapefruit citrus, sweet caramel malts and a touch of alcohol.
The taste follows the smell pretty well with the flavors exploding in waves. Sweet pale fruits and caramel, citrus and pine. There is an overt hop presence that brings a bold bitterness followed by the bite of peppery alcohol and warming. Surprisingly balance is maintained with just enough sweetness to offset what should be overwhelming hoppiness.
The body is medium plus and the carbonation light to moderate.
This one was a real treat. I will have to seek out more and recommend you do as well. Remember, fear not the hops

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.
Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.
Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
