Poured from a bomber into a regular pint glass gives a slightly cloudy amber beer with a good head that never completely goes away and leaves plenty of sticky lace.
The aroma hints at a strong malt character which is confirmed in the taste. This has a lot of maltiness for an IPA. It's a full-flavoured and smooth beer with a very good mouthfeel. Almost no bitterness in the finish, the hops are well hidden. DIPA doesn't always have to mean hopped up to eyeballs. I'm getting a little warmth from the alcohol - nothing too OTT.
For me personally this one's a bit too malty but it's a good beer and a good example of the style.

A: not much head, nice lacing though. Dark amber in color
S: maybe I'm a bit congested or something but I don't get much on the aroma.
T: very good. This is an interesting beer because the initial taste is boozy with raisin flavored like a Belgian double or something but then you get that hit of citrusy hops which finish with an intense and excellent bitterness. Good.
M: nice. Light and then bitter finish is very pleasant
O: this is a solid beer...interesting because of the booziness while still maintains hoppy character
Serving type: on-tap

The pour was a nice typical high IBU orange hue. The head lasted but only a few seconds.
But there was no question about hops here. Lots of different hops all coming out at once.
Once I got past the aroma, my first sip verified what my nose was saying. It was a nice dry bitterness, grapefruit, pine tar and citrus spices. But then, what else? that was it, there wasnt anything else. I wanted some malt to balance the bitterness, but with this beer, I just got bitterness without any roundness .
Even though this was a mid range IBU (70), the taste presented itself as being higher, but without a lot of the typical high IBU styles.
So, I walked away from this one with mixed emotions.
