look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz can into a snifter
A: Pours a dark amber with a big white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing on the glass. A little darker than I usually like my DIPAs but that's not a terribly bad thing.
S: The nose is full of aromatic hops in the form of grass, grapefruit, and pine. Once that settles there is a big candied sugar and malt aroma as well.
T: The taste follows the nose but is more malty than hoppy. I get big waves of slightly burnt caramel along with dark toffee and some pine and citrus as well. Not what I was expecting and it could be these were a bit old...there's no date on the can though.
M: The feel is pretty thick and creamy. Not sure if I like my DIPAs thick or crisp but I lean towards crisper examples of the style.
O: This has to be a bit old as the hops seem to have faded a bit and the malt is really at the forefront. It was a bit too sweet and the hops weren't exactly dominating the flavor. The aromas were great though.
Serving type: can
