Served in a DC Brau tulip.

A: Glistening gold, clear, and with a slight 1/4 finger head.

S: Ridiculous fruit/hop component. I'm thinking mango and orange juice.

T: A bit of booze, but not much... so much awesomeness! That sugar content teetered the wall on being too much, but it ultimately wasn't.

M: The right amount of booziness and sugar, the carbo was just about right, and the ridiculous lacing told the story.

O: The DIPA category is VERY competitive. This one is a noble entry into that competition.

Bottle from FreeBridge

Shiny golden, good clarity with a bit of chill haze. Topped by four fingers of snow white rocky bubbles. Inviting drippy lace.

Gigantic grapefruit aroma. Other supporting citrus. Very enticing.

Big solid semi-sweet foundation with real depth. An orchard of juicy fruit. Bitter enough to cover all the sweetness, but somehow balanced that way. A hint of heat in the afterglow.

Medium plus mouthfeel, with some prickliness.

An excellent anniversary present from Avery to us.

Bottle dated May 2013, so I assume past prime now in August. Pours a perfectly clear copper with fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is raw malt extract, some citrusy hops, and candy sugar smell. Flavor is super sweet pine citrus without much bite. Relatively light bodied for a double, but very slick mouthfeel. Definite caramel malt presence. Low carbonation. Only OK, but likely past it’s prime. Pretty drinkable other than the sweetness.

Just put on @ the cwe iTap

The beer pours a rich looking coppery orange with a fluffy white head that laces. The nose is grapefruit rindy with a hint of sweetness and booze. It's served a bit cold for true aromatics, but really only hits the citrus notes with any emphasis. The taste is a slap in the face of sticky hops, ruination-eque, crazy sweetness, hint of floral green tea changing thing up, and a love you long time bitter alcohol burn in the finish. I'd say this has medium bodied sweetness, is well carbonated, generously hoppy, and finishes with a nearly palate napalm bitterness. I don't see this dipa differentiating itself from the 100s of other good dipas I've consumed, but think it's still enjoyable when you've acquired the "hop itch."

Serving type: on-tap
