650ml bottle poured into a stemless wine glass.
The beer pours a lightly hazy copper color, hues of orange and amber with a thick, frothy white head, about a finger and a half high that has some spotted lace left behind. The aroma is nice, lots of piney, resinous hop oils with some rich, sweet caramel malt that is fairly sweet with some alcohol behind it. The flavors are nice, lots of hoppy goodness, grapefruit citrus with pine and lots of bitter, dank, earthy, resinous grassy oils that is balanced nicely with sweet and rich caramel malt and lingering alcohol. The body is nice, a bit rich and thick for an IPA, but carbonated perfectly with a lightly dry and sweet finish.
Verdict: A nice DIPA from Drake's, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries for their solid and consistent work. This is a bit malt forward for what I look for in an IPA but still rewarding.
