Poured from 12 oz bottle from Hoppymeal (thanks again) into a new belgium snifter. Poured a murky amber color with slight orange hue. A nice finger sized white head foamed up. The smell was a haunting pine, earth, citrus sweet scent with a little alcohol in the background. Taste was night a day from the smell. It was heavy on the pine bitterness but the hoppy flavor was lost among the sweet malt backbone and the bitterness of the hops. The alcohol level being so high was very well hidden though. The mouth feel was medium body with a nice stickness and low carbonation level. This beer is not really what comes to mind to me as a DIPA. It more like a barleywine that has been hopped up. The balance isnt there, but...I really do believe this beer should age fantastic and wish I didnt open up this bottle yet and think in maybe 2-3 years at cellar temps it will be better balanced.
