Serving: Bottle into tulip
Served: 14 Aug 2014

Appearance: Looks great- pours a nice deep amberish color and a decent one finger head that sticks around forever before eventually succumbing to the high ABV (which kills the head).

Smell: Huge floral and citrus hop notes, some malt sweetness.

Taste: This is where the beer falls apart- the hoppiness is not as prominent in the taste as it is in the nose, and the beer is dominated by a boozy cloying sweetness. The beer is so sweet it is offputting. The relatively high ABV is extremely evident in the taste, as some sips tasted like boozy alcohol. Really unimpressed and very disappointed.

Mouthfeel: Very thick on the tongue with light carbonation.

Overall: A hot boozy mess of a cloying sweet DIPA. One of the worst I've had.
