Appearance – This is a nice, super thick and hazy dull orange in color with a massive English-style head.
Smell – The hops are substantial but overwhelmed by the big British biscuit. I guess they put some Australian galaxy hops in here so was looking forward to getting a whiff but the British malts overpowered the hop profile. It’s a big, pleasant aroma, just not what I’d expect from a DIPA.
Taste – The hops are curiously much bigger at the taste. The biscuit is still sharp but more balanced and there’s a nice malty sweetness here that I didn’t pick up at the nose.
Mouthfeel – This is bigger than medium with a light bitterness offset by residual sugars.
Drinkability – This is a very different interpretation of the style, as collaborations often are, but it went down extremely well for a big 9.5 ABV beer.
