12oz bottle into my tulip.
A toasty amber hued yellow on the pour. Pillowy white head that rises high, giving a good 3 fingers of head. Recedes into a nice film with a solid bit of lacing.
Pine and citrus hops nose leap from the glass. Malt base is solid, giving a candy like presence that is just lovely.
Bitter start. Hops come into play fast and hard. Starts with a pine/citrus hop character. The finish sees a malt backing, though it is in the background. Malts are toasty, adding a mild caramel sweetness. This one is solely a hop monster. Finish is great. As you breathe out you get a resurgence of the lingering hop flavors bringing back all that once was. This one does not go down lightly.
Mouthfeel is rather smooth, with a light syrupy nature. ABV is felt more than sense. Mild warming and definitely a sipper.
A great DIPA and a must.
