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.

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Moderately hazed light amber color. One finger of creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: This smells about the same as their regular IPA. Sugary and citrusy hops in the form of orange, mango, and papaya. Bready yeastiness. Caramel maltiness with a light toastiness. Booze is well hidden.

3.5 T: Sugary hoppiness and citrus mentioned above. Caramel and toasty malts. Bready yeastiness. Less bitter and more sweet than the regular IPA.

3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess and super smooth.

3.75 D: Pretty good brew. This has a bigger malty component that the regular and it makes it more balanced and smoother.
