Thanks to Imperial_Sapient_Groat for this extra in a recent trade.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Great lacing and head retention. Amber/orange color in the glass.

Smell - Great citrusy, floral hop smell. Does not smell boozy at all after settling in the glass.

Taste - Obvious hop flavor up front with definite maltiness and sweetness. This tastes very similar to a barleywine in the way it drinks. Very smooth and drinkable for 12%. No after taste picked up.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth, especially for 12%. Not too thick or sticky. Can taste the hops on the tongue, especially up front.

Overall - This is a great beer. Nothing like any other DIPA I have had, definitely drinks more like a hoppy barleywine. It hides its ABV very well, and drinks quite smooth. I would not hesitate to purchase this if I am ever in a place that has it.

This pours a medium amber color with a foamy, beige head. There is a strong presence of hops in the aroma. The taste is strong, bitter, and full of flavor. This is everything you would expect from IIPA. Well made, delicious and something that doesn’t ruin your taste buds after one.
