Bottle was picked up at The Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA during a recent visit to Virgina.
Poured into a DFH Pint Glass
A - Beer pours a golden amber color. A small half-finger head that fades quickly. Lots of sticky lacing left after drinking.
S - A muted aroma but I'm picking up some hops and malts.
T - The aroma doesn't give a hint to how good this beer is. Lots of citrusy hop goodness with a strong malt backbone. Caramel/toffee like taste. This is very reminiscent of DFH 90 in it's lean towards the sweeter side. The hops provide a nice, bitter aftertaste but nothing that overpowers the overall balance. The ABV is well disguised for a 9.25% ABV brew.
M - A medium consistency/mouthfeel. Light carbonation.
O - This is a really good DIPA. It's very easy drinking and was a pleasant surprise. I had never heard of it before and pick up the bottle since I love DIPA's. Recommended.
