650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange with a nice white head. Good surface foam and retention.

Smell - Herbal hops. Some grapefruit. Lots of sweet malts. Alcohol.

Taste - Herbal hops right up from. A citrus sweetness builds in the middle. It's a blend of hops and sweet malts. Finishes dry, surprisingly. Boozy, though.

Mouthfeel - It's boozy but it's quite drinkable. Medium heavy body.

Overall - Very good, but there are better IPAs of the same style. Lawson's never disappoints, though.

Tasted this DIPA on tap at Lawson's 5th anniversary celebration a few weeks back, but I had a chance to get 5 bombers so I thought Id post my rev since someone has been kind enough to add the brew to Lawson's list. The smell is more or less exactly what I would expect only a more complex nose in this bottle then I recall on tap- piney, juicy citrus, pineapple and mango make for an excellent nose combo. The bold hops dominate and I can tell that this DIPA is gonna be wonderfully bitter just based on the smell. The taste isnt at all far off from the smell- I certainly notice the strong bitterness at first, however the piney and almost puckery citrus balances the bitter hops out very well. The slightly sticky resinous hops linger for a moment, but this is no issue to me. Crazy hoppy, but the label indicates as much and that's what I came for. The thing I must mention is how remarkably well disguised the 11.2 ABV is- quite smooth all things considered but will smack the pallet in the best way possible.
On the whole this DIPA is one of the best I have ever tried no questions. The amazing bitterness and huge flavor profile is in elite standing while this srtong brew is surprisingly drinkable considering the menacing hops and ABV. Get it if you can, however I have no Idea where one could find this anymore. I will certainly savor my last 5 bottles.
