Short and sweet review. Well, 'cause this was the sweetest DIPA I've ever had. Like orange marmalade in a glass.
Very malt centric, it even seemed as though the orange flavor came from the malt but not the hops. Perhaps this was a bit old, but
still a 2014 vintage. No smack of hops up front, and no bittering dry hops in the back end.
Overall, it was good, I sucked it right down. However, it reminded me more of a Belgian IPA than a DIPA.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANT A PALATE BURNING EXPERIENCE! But if you'd like to try a nice beer that is sweet and unassuming, go for
Hopzilla!

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass. No snifter were available.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Candied orange, caramel, herbal, grassy, pungent, onion, garlic, toasted, and biscuity malts.

Taste: Same as above. Mild bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, nice booze, medium carbonation, and tingly bitterness.

Overall: Pretty nice DIPA. Got better as it warmed, but this beer could possibly be aged for a bit too.
