3.85/5 rDev -1.5%

22oz bottle thanks to Chazari99 for the hook up. Split with my father. Poured into Founders snifter. Not sure the bottle date, but I'm assuming about 2-3 weeks ago, maybe less.
A- Pours a translucent copper with about a finger of white head that leaves spotty, but thick layered lacing. About average carbonation. A little bit darker then your average IPA.
S- Malty, some spices present, some citrus piney hops in the background. About average aroma strength.
T- Caramel malts, citrus hops, some spices, some more piney hops on the finish, finishes slightly bitter but not overly so. On the sweet side.
M- Medium bodied, abv very well hidden, pretty much no alcohol burn on the finish, finishes very smooth with a high drink-ability.
O- This was a pretty decent DIPA, especially considering how smooth it finished with the high abv. I think the hops might have faded a tiny bit, but they were definitely present especially in the taste. A little bit sweeter and maltier then most IPAs that I'm used to, but I guess that's in part due to hide the high ABV. Overall a nice strong IPA with a high drink-ability that I'd definitely like to come back to and could recommend to other Hopheads.

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.
