look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
A: Pours a slightly hazy orange/red with hints of brown. One inch off-white head. retention is decent, especially considering the strength of this brew. Patchy lacing.
S: Bitter American hops. Pine, grapefruit, mango. A touch of spicy alcohol. Esters evoke oranges. Light breadiness.
T: Oranges, mangoes, hint of melon. Moderately high bitterness. Peppery alcohol has a strong warming presence. Bready and slightly toasty malt body. Caramel and bread crust. I can almost swear I taste rye in there too, but I can't be sure. Finishes with bread crust, lingering hop bitterness, and tropical esters.
M: Moderately thick, slick from the hop oils, creamy. Low carbonation.
O: This is an IPA? Could have fooled me. The malt bill makes a strong statement, and throw in the big spicy alcohol presence and this beer shares more than a few similarities to a hoppy American Barleywine. I like it though. A style bender.
Notes: 13.6% abv? Damn. This is the biggest DIPA I've had since 120 minute. Very loose interpretation of the style, but a great beer nonetheless.

Appearance is a amber red color with a one finger white head that faded fast.
Aroma is bready, malty, sweet honey. Faint pine.
Taste is sticky sweet, malty and bready flavors that are well balanced.
Mouthfeel is medium to full with a perfect bitterness.
This is a great example of a high high abv ipa.
Reminds me a lot of gorillanaught. I'm impressed.
Would love to drink this again!
