12oz Can canned on 07/30/2014. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark amber with 1 finger of head with lacing down the glass

Smell: Pine and spruce hops

Taste: Theres hop flavor up front of pine and earth notes but quickly develops into a mix of malt and some alcohol warmth

Mouthfeel: Very creamy and cloying

Overall: This blurs the line between Double IPA and a strong ale/American barley wine. Its mouthfeel and flavor profile remind me of Dogfish Head 90 min. Theres a lot of complexity but as far at the Hop flavor of an American DIPA, this has a lot of malt and alcohol to cover it up.
