12oz bottle, hazy light brown colored body with a frothy, tan head that holds good retention & leaves chunky lacing. Looks more like a barley wine to me though. Aromas are fresh, earthy, citric, floral hops, backed by a huge dose of caramel, brown sugar, honey. Tastes are similar to aroma: loads of caramel, brown sugar, bready malt, honey, with earthy, citric hops, a bit boozy and hot, while bitterness lingers on. There is some diacetyl that is more noticeable as it warms. Once again, I'm thinking this is more like a hopped up barley wine. Mouth-feel is creamy, smooth, fullish body. Overall, I like this more as a barley wine. I was really excited about it, but I found it to be confusing as the malt profile is so strong. Decent complexity, just not a DIPA to me.
