Picked up at Beer Baron in Livonia, Michigan.

A - Pours hazy, dark orange. Retains a little bit of off-white head throughout the whole time. Laces the glass a little bit, though lacing did not stick. Not as much as their Buzzsaw laced the glass.

S - Smells sweet and malty. A bit of pine.
Tropical citrus smell. Pineapple/mango. Tangerine?

T - This is on the sweeter side of double IPAs. Juicy, tropical fruit flavors (I guess about same as the smell) from the hops and a sweet kind of caramel malt taste. Little bit of alcohol warmth, but the taste of it is mostly covered pretty well. While it starts off with a sweetness, it ends with some hop bitterness. It is fairly drinkable, although the sweetness may slow some down a bit.

M - Medium or so bodied. Oily/sticky.
Pretty good mouthfeel.

O - Pretty solid DIPA. Does a good enough job at living up to the "Mr. Delicious" name and fulfilling my want for a tropical (D)IPA. Good offering from Arbor Brewing, worth the try if you like this style of beer.

Poured this undated 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. (reviewed from notes). The body was a hazy orange/amber. The dense yellowy head settled to a thick cap leaving rings of lace in the glass. Impressive.

The smell was of hard candy. Bready.

The taste was citrus and pine. Some alcohol was evident. Orange rind. Pretty malty sweet, but it does dry out in the finish.

The mouthfeel was somewhat slick. Oily. Medium to full bodied. Modest carbonation. A pleasant surprise.

A - Pours a deep burnt orange with a one-finger white head. Heavy sticky lacing.

S - Heavy citrus - pineapple & orange and some malty sweetness.

T - Taste follows the aroma. A nice burst of citrus and sweet malt upfront. The finish has a nice amount of resinous hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Sticky & dry mouthfeel.

O - This is an above average DIPA. Deinetly worth trying.

The beer is dark orange and hazy with a thick, soapy white head. The aroma brings sweet citrus, candied fruits. The flavor confirms that this is a sweet beer. sweet breads and sugary pineapple and mango. Some alcohol warmth in the finish. Bitter hops gain strength as I progress through the beer. There is a nice balance here that shouldn't be overlooked. While a bit sweet and malty for my personal tastes, this is a decent beer. Elegant bready, malty body supports sweet resinous hops. Worth a try.
