Pours really hazy dark murky burnt orange. Head is thin, about half a finger but retains very nicely.
Smell is pretty good. Tons of caramel malt, maybe some rye. Pretty malt forward with a fair amount of earthy herbal hops upfront and well.
Taste is better then the nose. Loads of sticky semi sweet caramel malt forward along with and almost dry citrusy hop flavor before the deep piney herbal and earthy hop oils and resin set in. Bitterness is relatively mild.
Mouthfeel is great. Tons of sticky malt gives this a moderate body. With all the hoppy oils and resin it gives this a much bigger body. Moderate carbonation cuts through it nicely and leaves it drinkable.

A very cloudy/hazy amber in color, barely a finger of head that dissipated quickly. Smells of sweet malty caramel with slight bit of citrusy hops. The flavor is a bit boozy up front with a bit of sweetness coming from the grain bill, slight burnt-like bitter taste, a bit of citrus, and then a lingering bitterness... Not really much of a defined flavor, this is the least hoppiest dipa I've ever had. Medium body with barely any carbonation, makes this more of a sipper.
I took a gamble with this one. Not sure when it was bottled, but it tastes like an ipa that's past it's prime. Almost barley-wine like, which is cool - but not what I was expecting. I have to say that when I'm spending $11 plus shipping on a bottle, I'd like for it to be fresh. I ant say this was the case, but I also can't guarantee it since there's no date on the bottle. Judging by the flavor and the low carbonation, it's the first thing that pops up in my head.
