650ml bottle poured into tulip 1/10/1

A copper body with some suspended particles being moved around by a healthy amount of tiny bubbles that feed a well sustained two finger tan foam that leaves 6 distinct pencil thin rings followed by thick patches, looks great

S malty for the style, loads of toffee, caramels and brown sugar, hops are there no doubt about it with citrus and honey with a faint floral aspect and some booze

T more pine and booze then the nose, some orange creamsicle and lemon rind, again there's loads of burnt sugars and tastes old but I don't think it is, the booze could be hidden a little better too

M thick, syrupy and boozy, almost creamy from the bubbles and not bad in this department but more heat then I'd expect

O decent but nothing great, a little malt forward and the booze pops up more then it should

this is a one and done for me, 11$ a bomber and I could buy much more of a much better beer for the same price.

Pours a golden hazed amber hue with a creamy dimple laden two finger ever present head and some bubbly clingy lacing,on pouring the bottle I immediately am assaulted by the resinous pine,gooseberries and toffeeish malts,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and the taste definitely packs a punch of stringent bitter piney resinous hops,some herbal harshness,a sweet cameo of toffeeish malts and finished with a berry bittersweetness and overall it's average nothing over the top and better ones out there cheers.

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.
