Bottled 3/6/2014. Pours very hazy chestnut brown/copper color with a thick 1 finger foamy light tan head that was full of bubbles and faded slowly, leaving minimal lacing and a layer on top.

Smells of pineapple, caramel, citrus hops, piney hops, grapefruit, roasted grains, malty sweetness, fruity candy like Razzles or Skittles, herbs and a red wine like aroma.

Tastes sweeter than it smells with a lot more malt and booze in the mix. Flavor includes graham cracker, toffee, pineapple, orange juice, red grapefruit, caramel, roasted grains, citrus hops, piney hops, a buttered biscuit, tea leaf, fruity candy, spices like pepper and cinnamon and hint of booze like rum. A lot sweeter than I expected and relatively well balanced, however the booze does get more noticeable as it warms and the malt complexities seem to get stronger in the finish. The hop bitterness is powerful but tames the ABV to a manageable level.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a medium body, light carbonation and a slick feel that trails off bitter, leaving a grainy sweetness and some citrus aftertaste lingering.

I should have had this bottle sooner when it was fresher to get the most out of the hops, but besides that regret I enjoyed this beer. Not the smoothest or most sessionable DIPA, but it had a nice variety of hops balanced by a pronounced malt profile which kept the 10% ABV in check. Evil Twin always pushes the boundaries and this was another interesting brew from them.
