Big thanks to Khazadum for this one...
Poured from the bomber into my tulip. No freshness info, dang. Amber in color with no head. A little hazy but mostly clear.
Smell is quite hoppy but not particularly strong. Spicy hops dominate but there is plenty of sweet, bready malt there as well.
Taste follows smell as with most every DIPA I've had. The hop flavor is there but not as strong as I had hoped. Quite a bit of grapefruit hops covers your palate with each sip leaving behind a healthy amount of bitterness on the sides of my tongue. It's a fairly malty brew but the malt flavor is nice, complementing the hops well.
Mouthfeel is smooth but lacking some carbonation. Each sip leaves a little hop resin on the palate allowing you to sip the beer and enjoy it. Drinkability is pretty damn good with only a slight hint of the high %ABV. Overall a solid DIPA. I'm thinking the bottle I have isn't the freshest example but it was still quite enjoyable.
