Poured from a bomber to a pub style glass
A- Light copper body, 1 1/2" fluffy off white head
S- Floral, piney hops, sweet bready malts
T- Floral, piney, caramel, vanilla, sweet bready malts, grapefruit bitterness, slit alcohol twang
M- Amazingly creamy, low carbonation
O- I've been trying to get my hands on this for a while, and it was worth the wait. Not only does it taste amazing, it is incredibly creamy. For a DIPA it's incredibly balanced with a sweet bready malt backbone, that tastes of caramel and vanilla, and ends with a grapefruit bitterness and a suprisingly light alcohol twang, for a 10% abv beer. This is what i look for in this style, uniqueness, and a glorioud malt backbone. I've only experienced this flavor profile 2 other times with Stones Enjoy by IPA and Drake's Aroma Coma. All 3 of these beers are in my top 5.
