Received this as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear golden hue with a nice one finger off white head that leaves some sticky lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Ah, the aroma of not fresh DIPA! Heh, spoiled by the fresh DIPAs, this smells like, when fresh, it was excellent. Now though, now it is mostly sweet malts. Flashes of the hops that once were, centennial and citra mostly, Sweet grapefruit, bready crackers.

T - Ah, darn. Super, super sweet malts and very generic bitter finish. Light grapefruit. Again, flashes of what it deliciousness once was. The flashes of what it once were though come through though, which is why I have to give it a 3 and not a 2.5 or so.

M - Mouthfeel is on par for the style. Alcohol hidden nicely.

O - Overall, this beer at one point was probably quite delicious. Now though, its a malt bomb. Unfortunate.

Received as a generous extra from a PALMEJ1 trade, thanks bro. 16 oz can with no freshness date.

Pours a dark orange-amber-ruby color with a cloudy body. Head is about 1.5 fingers straight from the can. Average lacing and retention.

Not a ton on the nose, some juicy orange, pineapple, citrus scents, with malty sweetness.

Surprisingly bitter right up from and carries throughout the beer. Not a lot of hop flavoring to speak of. A touch of malty sweetness. The bitterness really overpowers everything and leaves a stale aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the average DIPA and carbonation a touch low. Averagely dry finish, more of the tongue-numbing bitterness than dryness.

Overall, I can't say I was a huge fan of this. Maybe it was old and lost a lot of its hop flavoring. An interesting brew from a brewery I haven't had before, but probably wouldn't try this again unless I knew it was super fresh, and then only to compare to this experience.
