look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
