look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy golden/orangey with a sliver of a white head on top. Some legs of lace.

S: Caramel malt is surprisingly noted on the nose. Only modest hops - a touch of citrus (grapefruit).

T: Like the nose, it's sweeter than expected (and sweeter than I prefer) for a DIPA. Some brown sugar and caramel malt foundation is followed by fruity hops - a bit of citrusy grapefruit and a hint of pineapple. Sweetness and bitterness battle in the aftertaste, with neither side really prevailing. Again, for a DIPA, that's not what I want; I want to be slaughtered by hop bitterness lingering well after the sip. . .

M: Medium-to-full in body, carbonation is adequate but fairly low-key.

O: OK. Sweeter than I like for a DIPA

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a puffy layer. It is an orange yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, herbal, piney, grassy, some alcohol, candy caramel sweetness, and bready malts.

Taste: You pick up some bitterness in the rear along with everything else. The heat of the alcohol could chill down a little bit, but still bearable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, some alcohol, tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: It's been sometime, but still as tasty as I remember. Will be drinking more of these in the future too.
