4.47/5 rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Batch no.14, June 2011.
A - Dark burnt orange color. Clear. Tan head with excellent lacing.
S - Pine, pineapple, citrus, mango, a slight hint of dark caramel. Wow!
T - Pineapple and mango upfront with a dark, rich toffee to back it up. Ends nice and dry with just a touch of bitterness and sweetness.
M - Medium carbonation. Medium to heavy mouthfeel. Heaviness coming from the rich toffee flavor, but the hop bitterness lightens it up.
D - Medium. ABV is well hidden, but the richness of the malts makes you want to take your time with this one.
This one might have been passed its prime ( about 2 months old), but still is extremely tasty! This is one of my favorite DIPAs.

Tipple's Brews - Gainesville - Release #18, 2014 - 1 pint, 6 oz. Bottle
A - pours a nice orange with two fingers of white bubble head that somewhat quickly dissipated. Carb levels coming up are standard. Nice clarity.
S - Nice citrus notes on nose, has nice earthy qualities to it. Hop presence is forward here. Mildly boozy here.
T - Start is nice and warming. Has a boozy quality there (expected for 10+%). Extremely smooth for being an Imperial. Has a very balance hop and malt profile. The end you get that booziness for sure, but between it is a nice caramel, sweet taste.
M - Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Carbonation is perfect. Smooth, very smooth, no real bite to speak of like you get w/ alot of Imperials.
O - Worth a try. Very nice qualities to it. At the price point, it may not be all that, but for what it is it does not dissapoint.
