Bottle courtesy from Kadonny, thanks! Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance is dark yellow with half finger off-white head. Significantly lighter than an average DIPA.
Smell is of strong honey and brown sugar. Some bready malt is noticeable with some east coast hops in the background.
Taste is pure honey, I'm not sure this isn't a hoppy mead beer. Some piny bitterness mid palate, with an alcoholic finish.
Mouthfeel is soupy and somewhat astringent. Feels like an iced tea that had too much honey added. I would have preferred a more dry mouthfeel.
Overall I feel like I either got a bad bottle, or maybe this beer is a bit over rated. I can think of many IIPA's I would rather have over this one. Too sweet for me, maybe I'll be able to try this fresh off the tap some day.
