3.6/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Purchased in NC in November and I thought a 9.5% DIPA would maintain its hoppiness far better than this one has, so my mistake in not drinking it immediately. Bottle pours a murky, orange brown, with almost no head . Not a visually appealing beer, and the (appropriate) oiliness is exaggerated by the lack of carbonation.
Aroma is unfortunately of faded hops, with an underlying caramelized malt sweetness. None of the citrus or floral tones for which I'd hoped. The flavour has held up better, as there is still a very nice bitterness to the finish. The high alcohol level is terrifyingly well hidden, and tropical fruit hop notes balance well against the red malt body.
Although I'm a fan of both Mikkeller and BrewDog, still struggle with having paid $7.99 for a faded 330 mL bottle...

On Draft at Meddlesome Moth. Served in a tulip glass.
A- Copper. Little head that dissapeared quickly. Very little lacing. Clear as day
S - I'm getting caramel and citrus
T - Candied sugar and bitterness blend well
M - Smotth. No alcohol burn
This tasted better the more it warmed up. I'd definitely let it sit a bit before drinking.
