First time from the can, into a snifter.
A: Clear orange, golden brown body, slightly off-white head that retains a nice surface cap and huge ring, with tons of lacing. Some visible carbonation...but you gotta look for it.
S: Subdued aroma, spicy hop note comes through on a deep sniff. Surprisingly subdued for a DIPA.
T: Lots of piney hops, with hints of citrus. Toastiness. Some malty sweetness in the aftertaste.
M: Moderate body, slightly prickly carbonation. Veryt slightly drying from the bitterness of the hops.
O: A fine and easily drinkable DIPA. Subdued aroma, yet very true with the expected hoppy notes, and the flavor is all DIPA. Of note, it is not boozy (though some claim it is), I think the huge portions of hops lead some to interpret the booziness. Get some spicy food, and drink a few of these down...the food will taste great and the beer and will still come through onto the palate for a pleasant accompaniment.
