look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
poured from a 12oz. bottle. batch #10073 into a brewery goblet.
appearance is a golded copper color with creamy white lacing that fades quickly.
smells strongly of a woodsy piney hop with just a hint of citrus.
taste there is a strong malt backbone that is present throught and plays well with the pleasently overwhelming aroma and flavor of the hops. the honey contributes nicely near the end and it finishes rather dry and resiny im sure do to the late addition and dry hopping.for a 10% dipa the alcohol hides well and only reveals itself as a minor note as the beer warms.
mouthfeel is rather thick and creamy for an dipa.
drinkablilty this beer is extremely flavorful and almost every drink reveals a subtle nuance. its an exiting experience, one i look forward to every january.
