Big thanks to beermebaby89113 for stuffing my fridge with west coast ipas (and other tasty treats). Enjoyed from a capt Lawrence taster tulip.
a - brew poured a semi-transparent orange with a thin off white IPA head that was gone relatively quick but left the glass coated with chunky lacing.
s - Smell seems malt dominated with a subtle fruitiness in the back ground. The mix bouquet of hops is definitely present but tamed back by the malt bill. Little musty but quite easing.
t - denogginized! The bitterness is center stage, but again, the malts really act as a counterpart to tame things back. Some booze. There is a LOT going on in this beer, so many hops, so many malts...it seems a bit confused to me. Not bad, but not great. Very malt forward for an imperial IPA. Not sure of the age though.
m - pretty full bodied and rather boozy.
o - overall, not the classic imperial IPA. Very strong malt bill and lots of other flavorings. The abv is up there too, but seems more of a distractor than a helper. Always excited to try a new IPA or IIPA but this is one that I wouldn't seek out again, but will enjoy this bottle. Malty but super bitter, so not barley wine like.

This is a good DIPA, but it's not my kind of flavor profile. I just don't like big malty flavors in my IPA's. The malt flavor, mainly the caramel profile takes over.. I don't get much tropical fruit, or fruit at all. There is a big floral profile, and a big sweetness from the malt. I wanted more hops and tropical fruit.
