A: Amber gold with an off-white head that leaves a beautiful lattice of lacing. Excellent head retention.
S: Floral, grapefruit and honey aromas comprise a delightful nose.
T: Nose opens up to sweet malt, honey, alcohol & pine flavors.
M: Smooth, clean body with a dry finish.
O: Perfect balance & clean bitter finish. Spot on!

Golden orange in color with not much head. Some good lacing but the head dissipates really quickly. Intense citrus aroma with tons of tropical fruit; grapefruit, mango, pineapple, etc. Taste is more fruit, very citrusy. The preceived bitterness is only moderate. Not boozy at all considering the high ABV. Could pass it off as a regular IPA, other than the intense amounts of hop aroma and flavor. Still a great DIPA.

Poured out a 12oz bottle into a Petrus Tulip.

A: Pours orange, one finger of white head that dissapates rather quickly. Little to no lacing is present.

S: Very fruity, citus fruits such as grapefruit are definitely present with honey. The hop smell is very minimal.

T: This has to be the smoothest DIPA I've had - including Dreadnaught. Fruity tastes up front, finishes with a little bit of a honey and hop taste, not bitter - perfect.

M: Light body, medium carbonation.

O: Outstanding. It's downright scary that this DIPA is 10% because it could easily be a session beer. I could drink these until I pass out, which by the 10% ABV wouldnt be very long. I'm glad there is plenty to go around this time of year. Good work Bells!
