Bottle

Thanks for this one, Gordon!

Clear orange and auburn with a thick, persistent off-white head. Lines of lacing left down the glass.

Citrus (lots of orange flesh and skin), sweet caramel and toffee, and alcohol heat combine for a strong, powerful aroma.

High bitterness, mild citrus undertones, bready and sweet (caramel) malts, and warm alcohol burn.

Medium bodied, though oily and with a hot alcohol presence throughout.

Decent and drinkable, but doesn't stand with the best of the bunch.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz to a pint glass. No best by date

Appearance: Pours a thin, nonaggressive head with a little lacing and very little carbonation. It's a pale straw gold color and seems just a little hazy.

Smell: Hoppy and bitter, with some grapefruit citrus and a hint of something that I can't put my finger on, but is more generally attributed to dark beers. Something dark fruit/coffee/smoke

Flavor: Hop bitterness starts out strong but doesn't go the distance, diminishing to favor a mild malt sweetness with lemon and tobacco.

MF: Heavy and sweet, but well balanced without a huge amount of complexity that makes you think as you drink.

Poured into a stone nonic.

This is a very pretty deep golden DIPA. The downfall, however, is the smell and taste character. Cocoa powder, wet wood, and monotone hops come through in the nose. Taste is interesting but not that great. A strong hop entrance that gives way to a buttered bread taste that transitions into very strong just burnt crust and burnt wood character and finally into an almost poison-like strong rotten-wood esque touch. Not horrible but not my cup of DIPA tea.
