Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A deep reddish bronze body, nearly crystal clear, slight bit of dull haze but quite easily can see some great slow rising carbonation. Head is creamy thick, off white and fistfull tall. Big creamy retention and whipped up with some small bubbles mostly and some large pebble sized ones as well.

Solid hop aroma. Juiced orange and spicy malt notes slightly. Some very floral and airy perfume like qualities too. Slightly sweet, and a hint of brown sugar and syrup.

Palate comes really surprisingly in the feel more than anything. Creamed sweet bodyfeel and almost biscuity like malt qualities like an English bitter on the malt angle. Hop angle is nicely subtle with aromatics popping into mint and treacle syrup. Finishes thick and juiced up, with some coating malt and resin. Sweetness comes out quite a bit on the malt angle as well, almost into barleywine territory here.

Overall it's a neat one, but doesn't come off with a huge impression, and seems to get into barleywine stradling territory. Still a solid decent brew.

Picked this up at Brewers Haven Boise a week or so ago, but now most of the Geek places have it on ... cool.

22 for about $8 ... poured tonight into my CC Teku... short lived white head and only decent lacing... nice clear orange brew.

Nose is sweet and bitter.. pithy citrus and a bunch of pale maltiness... fruity hop bowl is reminiscent of papaya, guava and perhaps strawberry.

Bitter up front but a pretty heavy residual maltiness moves in quickly.. tropical fruity hops and some floral hops magically grow wings and move the ABV into the more drinkable realm.. mango and lesser melon, I am impressed.. Bigger ABV and should be enjoyed cool and allowed to warm up... The hops really morph as the temperature changes.. Very well done DIPA.

On-tap at TRB, served in a 10oz tulip.

A: Served a clear golden with a thin, greasy, and dense off-white head. Sheets of stick lace were left down the glass.
S: Huge amazingly strong nose of stinky, fresh, amarillo hops. I get fragrant scents of orange citrus and a touch of pine. Hops smells as if I am holding hop cones in my hand instead of a beer.
T: Follows the nose with notes of earthy citrus tangerine and a touch of pine and wintergreen. Crushingly bitter finish, slight sweet, with a long lingering bitter aftertaste. The hops are leafy and fresh overall, and seriously taste like the smell of fresh hop cones/pellets.
M: Heavy full body with a thick, oily, greasy and resinous mouthfeel. The alcohol presence is felt but I get no heat. Sticky, thick and slightly boozy.
O: A one-dimensional monster of a beer. A bit rough around the edges, but if you're a fan of hugely hopped out-of-control triple ipas, definitely give this one a try.

4.33/5  rDev +3.8%

A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger foamy cream colored head. The head recedes fairly quickly, but each sip yields a thick swathe of lace.

S: Tons of tropical hops right away. Thick mango, pineapple and honey. A bit of peppery pine resin and bready malt as well as some booze. For 11%, this doesn't come off too hot though.

T: A good amount of mango and piney hops come through first. The middle shows some sweet honey malt that's almost buttery when coupled with the mouthfeel. Finish brings a ton of of peppery pine resin and just a touch of booze. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, never making you believe the alcohol in here is low, but also not blowing you away with heat. Incredible balance for a beer this big.
