1.78/5 rDev -57.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5
Poured as a lovely burnt orange / amber color with a white head that has constant carbonation. Nice appearance.
Aroma was of alcohol and I had to strain really hard to get a faint hint of grapefruit... but malt was the rest of the aroma. This is a DIPA? Definitely doesn't smell like one to me.
Taste was of malt, alcohol, and no hops whatsoever. Turned me completely off. I demand some hops or at least for the beer to not be so boozy / hot.
Mouthfeel was decent at first but then heats up rather fast due to the alcohol.
Drinkability was very low due to the massive alcohol content and the letdown that this brew was for me. I won't be purchasing this beer again. DIPA without hops whatsoever makes no sense to me.

4.58/5 rDev +8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Location: Half Time Poughkeepsie
Glassware: Delirium Tremens Tulip
Appearance: Copper to Brown in color with a moderate head on an aggressive pour. The head is lightly browned as well.
Aromatics: The hops hit me as soon as the cap was removed from the bottle. There is a strong pineapple tropical fruit flavor so sweet that it almost smells honeyed. Some malt in the background.
Flavor: That bitterness keeps hitting. Along with a buttery fruit flavor. Some bready malts. I'm getting a lot of flavors from this beer. The mouthfeel is very smooth until the finish.
Finish: The finish keeps a lot of the hop residue along with a boat load of carbonation lingering.
Notes: Sealed in tin foil. Release number 18 2014
Serving type: bottle

4.18/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Hazy light brown, one-finger head
S: Lots of malt, caramel, toffee followed by grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit underneath. Complex and very pleasant to smell
T: Matches the nose but the hops are more prevalent
M: Full bodied; malty, hoppy, not hot but I can tell the EtOH is there
O: Not the best DIPA I've had but quite tasty and a classic example of the style. I've had this both bottled and on tap and it's far better on tap
Serving type: growler
