Grabbed this on a whim with no knowledge of its quality. No date on bottle but I get a feeling its not the freshest bottle I've ever bought. This ale pours a deep red mahogany color with almost no head and very little lacing. This does not look like a dipa. There is an unappetizing over abundance of sediment in this beer. I love unfiltered and bottle conditioned beers but this is utterly ridiculous. Literally chunks of stuff bigger than the end of one of my fingers floating around the beer. It's a definite turn off. The aroma is all malt; buttery, vanilla-y, sweet, and rich. This does not smell like a Dipa. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. This does not feel like a dipa. The flavor is very malty; follows the nose with caramel and butter notes. It reminds me of oak aged offerings. There is a little hop bitterness in the taste but it is quickly overtaken again by the malt. There is also a substantial alcohol bite but it is smooth and warming and enjoyable. This does not taste like a dipa. Overall, this one seems far closer to a barleywine or a strong ale than a dipa. I don't know if it is the age or the intention but it is definitely not hoppy or bitter by any means. I'd actually probably rate this higher if it was labeled as one of those and if it wasn't for the completely off putting appearance.

A - This beer is a beautiful translucent dark amber, with a fine, almost-white head. Very rich color!
S - I get a lot of plum, dark fruits, some grape... slight hints of chocolate or toffee. Not a strong smell, but pleasant.
T - Same as smell, but the hops are much more present. Aftertaste is fruity and hoppy, and sorta dark for a DIPA. Alcohol is masked pretty well as a 10% ABV, but there is a pretty noticeable warmth in the throat.
MF - Smooth and slightly on the heavy side. Medium hop oils on the palate. Carbonation is medium-light, just right for my liking.
Overall this DIPA is heavier and fruitier than others that I've had, it leans toward being a Belgian almost- with much more hops. It's unique for its style and much under-appreciated. Maybe this was a good batch or something. Usually I agree with BA reviews but I'm seeing much more in this beer than what I see here. It's quite enjoyable and I recommend picking it up!

A- The deep color is impressive. The clarity is interesting. It pours a bit sloppy with no real head. Bottle states best by 7/8/14.
S- Very weak aroma. I can smell the hops, but it doesn't hit me very hard. There is nothing particularly off putting, but it doesn't grab my attention either.
T- The taste has some citrus flavor. It doesn't sit and stay awhile. It passes very quickly with no impressive aftertaste. It's a refreshing beer for such a high alcohol content. It's smooth, not overpowering. Doesn't leave me wanting a second.
M-It holds a cream feel in my mouth. There is a spotty feeling, doesn't fill my taste buds. It hits one corner, then leaves quickly. Gives it a mysterious undertone.
O- I would enjoy this beer in late August on a porch in northern Wisconsin. I appreciate it for what it is/wants to be. It's very non-conformist, I'm going to do what I want- kinda beer. It's just being what it wants to be, not impressing, but not unreliable either. I would drink it again, just not one after another. It's really good at hiding the high alcohol content.
