Clear Golden Amber in color.
Smells more malty than hoppy, considering it's a DIPA.
Tastes creamy and wholesome at the get-go... Hard to imagine it carries a 9.2% ABV based on my first impressions, but then it quickly turns to a heavy, labor-some experience. This beer indeed boasts a high alcohol content, and towards the bottom of your glass, it's all you taste. Mouthfeel and finish are similar to after-burn of taking shots of bourbon or rye. Nevermind the initial flavors, the later half of the glass is how I'll remember this beer.
Overall, this beer needs work. It's probably best shared so you can enjoy the initial impressions, but not the chore of finishing the entire serving.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured 22oz bottle into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a slightly hazy dark copper body under a one finger tight bubbled off-white head.
S-The the aroma is prominent malty with light hops that are piney and resiny over the sweet caramel malt base.
T-Taste is sweet up front, then bitter, citrus and lingering bitterness,
M-Medium to full bodied with a slightly chewy and sticky body, soft gentle carbonation.
O-Overall an average DIPA that hides the hops.
