12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy copper color. It requires a very aggressive pour just to yield one finger of white-colored head, and even then, it doesn't have good retention. A little bit of lacing is left behind, though.

S: Very citrusy...but also very sweet. The hops bring some nice grapefruit notes and even a few tropical fruit hints. On the other hand, it's smothered by all that sweet caramel and toffee coming from the malt backbone.

T: Two words: toffee bomb. It has a citrusy start, before the huge maltiness takes over. Maybe there's some mint in the finish. Did I mention its a toffee bomb? Because sweet zombie Jesus, this is ridiculously sugary for an IPA. It's also kind of boozy.

M: It's crisper on the back end than I would have guessed. This bite helps give it a touch more drinkability than I expected - which means it's pretty good for such a thick, sugary, syrupy DIPA. Decent carbonation also helps, too.

O: I'm not a fan of this big, boozy, sugary sweet DIPA, but this isn't horrible. It also doesn't do much to make it more desirable to someone averse to this kind of beer. It's decent enough, all things considering.
