What an odd brew we have here. 12oz can served into a Duvel tulip.

A - Looks like a barleywine. Deep amber, almost red pour. Slight haze, bone white head. I must say it has very nice lacing.

S - Grainy, cantaloupe style malts with an earthy hop note way behind. No citrus or fruitiness to the hops. Kind of a quiet aroma for a DIPA.

T - This should not be classified as a double IPA. This drinks like a barleywine-light through and through. Malt forward for sure, with an earthy hop note closing out. Slightly to moderately bitter. Booze is noticeable but pleasant. This just hits more American barleywine notes than it does DIPA notes. Not bad at all, just misclassified.

M - Carbonation is nice, as is the mouthfeel. Slightly coating, but not too thick.

O - If this beer wasn't classified or rated as a DIPA, it would probably do it good. This drinks more like a light barleywine than a DIPA. If you're into malty barleywines with a slight earthy hop-bite, you'll enjoy this.
