A very non traditional DIPA, the name alone had me interested enough to purchase once but I don't think I will get it again. The beer poured a cloudy copper color with a thin white head. Smell was very bready and malty with a slight hint of citrusy hops. Flavor was a mixed bad with a powerful malt presence, slight citrus hop bite in the middle and an unexpected nuttiness on the back end finish. For a beer at 9% abv the alcohol flavor is not very prominent at all. Mouthfeel was thick and not over carbonated, but the heavy malt flavor translated into a heavier mouthfeel as well.

This tasted like a beer that does not know its own identity. Definitely not hoppy enough to be a DIPA and a confusing malt profile that made this a not too enjoyable experience.

Pours golden brown with a finger head. Boozy smell with not much character. Wheaty to the tongue but finishes boozy. I bought it because of the name to be honest. It wasn't bad but it didn't blow my mind. Overall, It's an average IPA. I would buy it again but only if I was left with few options.

The back-end bitterness is very mild with most of the hops coming from late additions, as far as I can detect. It seems weak and underpowered for a DIPA. The flavor is nice and mild with no booze detected, pleasant caramel and biscuity flavors being countered by citrus and fruit hops. I'd drink it again because it wasn't a bad beer by any means, it was just not what I've come to expect from a DIPA
