Ap- pours a copper/amber color with a thin white head that has ok retention.

Ar- the normal hoppy characteristics with a lot of booze and some biscuity malts.

T- not as floral as I thought it would be, seems the flavors are a bit muted, maybe from the booze-y undertones. has a good malt backbone for a TIPA. Nothing really stands out though I feel like the alcohol is hiding some of the fruity/floral characteristics I look for in a strong IPA.

M- sticky, and medium bodied. really warms the mouth on the hold. good carbonation for the style.

O- a good beer, but a strong beer too. This may be the limit for an IPA. Starting to lose some of the flavors a typical IPA should have in place of boozey flavor. Glad I tried it though!

When i poured this beer, it has a nice reddish copper color body with no head to it. The smell is bursting with hop bitterness and some citrus. The taste is like wow, nice and bitter up front from the hops and then a little malt on the back of the tongue. It even gets nicer as it sits and warms up. The mouthfeel is very nice, kinda heavy, its not a sipping beer but its not a chug it down either, its somewhere in between. It leaves a nice stickyness on the tongue also. Overall a really good DIPA.
