Very impressed with this, especially compared to Hopslam. It amazingly manages to have a smooth, easy drinking flavor while maintaining an extremely pleasant hop aroma and high alcohol.

Color, flavor, etc... were flawless and multiple servings could be enjoyed in an evening - this can't be said about many other DIPAs on the market.

12 ounce bottle into tulip, bottled 12/23/11. Pours slightly hazy bright amber color with a huge 3 finger off white head with fantastic retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap that lasts for the remainder of the glass. Some decent lacing on the glass as well. Aromas of big grapefruit, floral, grass, pineapple, lemon, pine, and some herbal spiciness. Damn nice and fruity aromas here with good strength. Taste of strong grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, pine, and floral notes; with a bit of spice as well. Nice amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit, pine, and spiciness on the finish for a while. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a bit of a creamy mouthfeel that drinks very smoothly for being over 9%. No alcohol noticed other than a small warming after the finish. Overall this is definitely a fantastic DIPA. Tons of fruity flavor, with great balance, and smooth drinking for the level of alcohol.

*bottled on 12/23/11; reviewed on 1/11/12

DT has the classic look of an AIPA...rusty orange colored with a bit of haze. The aroma hints of bitter citra hops, but does not explode from the glass. The taste has a strong citra hop presence: grapefruit bitterness. This tastes like a cousin of FFF Panzer Wolf. While I find many DIPAs to be a bit syrupy on the mouthfeel, this is not that way to me. Compares favorably to Stone Ruination...

*Overall: another great IPA from the state of MI...
