4.31/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a heavy hazy appearance. Poured with a short cream white foam that reduced to a wispy cap that left random sticky lacings on the glass. Dank, musty hop aromas, over-ripe tangerine and pineapple, with a sweet maltiness beneath. Medium bodied with a slightly resinous feel up front that quickly transitions to a smooth oily feel to the finish. Dank, bitter hop flavors with ripe citrus and a sweet, malty backbone. Finished dryly with a tangy hop bite, and ripe citussy and pine hop aftertaste. This was not what I expected. This falls outside the typical DIPA offering. Funky, slightly complex aroma, great feel, fabulous hoppiness, crisp finish. Impressive.

A: A strong rush of effervesce rises within a bengal tiger orange colored body that showed a medium rate of obstruction. A foamy 2 finger head with yellowish undertones sits for a relative amount of time while leaving large speckled clumps of foam deposits on the vessel. Second pour shows a good natured amount of micro-bran particulate matter suspended in the body.

S: Aroma had a light fruitiness, apple, oranges and citrus notes. Some warm and spicy herbal hops comes about with some baked bread and dried grassiness on the trail.

T: Flavor showed a caramelized toasted grain sweetness with dried honey and a spicy hopping with background nuances of tropical fruit. Caramelized pineapple, mango hints with a sweet and spicy hopping of citrus and speciality grain gave this a light edge fruitiness factor combined with some piney-honeyed flavored alcohol content. Floral grapefruit touch appears on the finish with some caramel apple, glaze and alcohol glow.

M: Full bodied, sticky caramel and pine with a alcohol glow that was gentle and complimenting.

O: Overall a nice transition of flavor, some sweet and fruity moments, some spicy, and a sweetly toasted background of honey malt. Sticky sweetness, tropical notes provide a decent amount of complexity, while keeping things fresh and wet,not to dry in the hopping department but still brought enough respect and balance to make this 9.0% monster a very drinkable affair. Repeat worthy.
