Came across this is my cellar today - didn't mean to let a DIPA age but oh well, not much I can do now other than drink it!
Served in a Weyerbacher tulip. Poured with a thick two fingers of head. Hazy and not particularly transparent, and amber in color. More reddish than I expected. Sweet vanilla notes in the nose, and some grassy clover fragrance. Taste began with a toffee sweetness followed by notes of tea leaves bitter citrusy hoppiness. Great mouthfeel, very smooth and bubbly.
Overall, a unique beer that was fairly enjoyable. I wish I had tasted it fresh as I'd be curious to see how much the hops have faded, but it still held up fairly well.
