look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

An extreme beer with a hoppy nose presenting caramel, spice, cardamom and alcohol. It pours a chill hazed amber that clears up as it warms under a 1” bone white foam cap that slowly dissipates. It attacks the palate with rich malts when combined with the big alcohol suggest bourbon over spice and cola. Full to chewy body is tempered by an extremely fine soft carbonation and a very creamy texture. Everything is big, but well balance. The alcohol it warming but not overly hot or solventy.

Not sure if it supposed to be there but I Love the lightly oxidized sweetness on both nose and buds! Very complimentary to this well balanced DIPA.

Pours a day-glo orange colour, bit of cloud. Head is off-white, bit cloudy and whispy. Decent, but not amazing.

Smells nice. Sweet malt with cake batter, but plenty of West Coast hops with it too - citrus, paw-paw, touch of mango. Pleasant. Right in the sweet spot.

Taste is massively hoppy from the get-go. Not to its advantage. Sweet, fruit salad flavour, with intense apricot, sultana grapes, peach and mango. Yeah, fruity sweet and could use more citric bite. Has that hop heaviness on the back, but not really flavour, which is all just sweetness. Needs more grounding.

Smooth, bit of edge at the end, but quite drinkable and pleasant.

Could see people really enjoying this. It's really quite drinkable, but for me it just lacks edge.

3.44/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 10/1/13 at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of citrus
Head large (5 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to a layer varying from 1 to 4 mm
Lacing OK, partial rings and medium islands of small to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, chill haze
Flavor begins with citrusy hoppiness which fades to a tangerine sweetness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation

A quite nice DIPA at ten months old; I can only imagine how it would have been fresh. Although to hops have deteriorated some, this is still better than many of the fresh IPAs.
