4/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/2/14, poured into a tulip
A- pours a bright deep golden color with a small creamy white head that retains a small layer, leaving some short lasting lace behind
S- sharp piney hops with some citrus rind, slightly danky and grassy, sugary and bready malt backbone
T- loads of piney, floral, citrus and tropical fruity hops attacks the palate up front, super sweet malt kicks in mid-palate to stand up to the hops, sugary finish with a big linger of piney hops
M- heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a syrupy mouthfeel and a thick and creamy finish, with some alcohol warmth on the linger
O- a palate wrecker big big sweet malty notes to back up the huge hops, the only down side is that I usually like a cleaner DIPA, not a sweet and malty, still a great beer
