A 12 ounce bottle born on 10/15/2013 - nearly three months now - split into tulip glasses.
Pours a hazy copper color with some deep orange hues. A mere 5 mm of head develops, comprised of pure white bubbles just large enough to exclude classification as “foam.” The aroma is of earth, wet dirt specifically. There is a spicy, herbal prominence commensurate with a substantial hop bill. Sweet, fruity sugars finish the nose. The liquid carries notes of robust, earthen hops to the tongue, surprising it with a rush of bitter and spicy sensations. Sugar and citrus jump out almost immediately, though the former lingers substantially longer. In fact, the grapefruit and lemon are largely overpowered by the sweetness of the brew. The mouthfeel reflects the apparent sugar content - thick, almost viscous, and dry. Carbonation and alpha-acids balance and liven the body, but further contribute to the dry, resinous finish. Note that this is a 13% ABV concoction, and the alcohol remains hidden even this far into the drink. Overall, this is a spicy and sugary DIPA that foregoes balance and tradition in favor of masking a substantial alcohol content. Though better than many lesser attempts, the pronounced sweetness prevents it from being anything more than “average” for me.

Pours dark orange, decent light beige head that goes (not too fast) to a nice lace, with lots of traces on the glass.
Fruity hop smell from afar. Close in and you get huge tangerine, pineapple, sweet peach, extra faint tropical notes too, grapefruit, fruit jam, caramel, warm alcohol (not too much tho), faint pine and breadiness.
Starts really sweet, full off peach and tangerine jam, pineapple syrup, faint papaya and passion fruit, grapefruit and oranges (with lots of bitter peel later on). Strong alcohol and bitter hops settle in, both rather pleasant, not disturbing. Big green profile, leafy, dank, touch of pine, big hop oils, with a really big bitterness in the end. The alcohol helps push the fruitiness through the bitter "barrier", leaving lots of the sweet tastiness in the aftertaste, at the cost of some extra booziness.
Medium body, a bit oily, medium carbonation. Alcohol is almost anesthetic towards the end, really piles up, so be careful. So does the syrupy sweetness.
Lots of tasty hops and almost decently handled huge abv, quite a monster of a beer.

Beautiful IPA: nice white head, slightly hazy orange body.
Hoppy aroma with sweet caramel and biscuit as well.
Incredibly sweet, from malts to hop profile to sugar. Fruity, tropical, thick and syrupy. The bitterness is overwhelmed by the sweetness.
Sticky and syrupy.
This reminds me of Devil Dancer: potent, incredibly sweet, and hoppy. Too sweet for my tastes.
Serving type: on-tap
