The smell of this beer blew me away. So hoppy and sweet. Golden orange/yellow on the pour. Lacing on glass. Head dissipates, spotty on surface. Taste yields alcohol, too prevalent. Aftertaste leaves mouth very dry. Very good beer - the outstanding smell pushes this to a 4 score, but is not outstanding overall.

Thick head, good retention. Clear copper -- no haze.

Great mouthfeel.

A little heavy for me. (Maybe not a fairly complaint of a DIPA?)

Fairly bitter, balanced with a fair bit of malt sweetness. In fact, too much malt sweetness.
