A quick pour yields a modest head of an off-white, slightly tan color. Silky and smooth, the head has good retention from active carbonation and leaves some trailers on the sides of the glass. The brew is a hazy dark amber color and perfectly translucent.
Fresh hops hit the nose right away in the aroma, with some flowery citrus notes. First swallow reveals more hops and plenty of alcohol esters, with creamy malts and a depth of grain flavor approaching a barley wine. Caramel, brown bread and tangy grapefruit flavor intermingle on the palate, leaving a bittersweet essence. Well balanced considering the high gravity (this bottle is labeled at 13.6%), this DIPA is a pleasure to drink.
