Huge thanks to PhiDelt for this four pack. 16oz can into my Narke tulip.
Pours a dark peach color with a really nice off white head. Good retention and lacing. The beer is pretty light colored for a dipa...The aroma is super sweet, light caramel, really nice grapefruit with a light alcoholy hop finish. Its not overly strong in respect but nice to smell and balanced...The taste is pretty decent, doesn't hold up as well as the aroma though. A pretty sweet alcohol dominates the flavor, light pine, a little grapefruit. More pine on the finish. A little too much alcohol, but I was told to drink quickly as the hops might be fading so maybe that is the case? I would love t try this fresth...The feel is pretty light, very warm alcohol finish, but still super easy to drink.
This is a sweeter pretty solid dipa. I would love to try it fresh, but I would take a Surly Furious over this any day.
