Bomber to a pint glass...to lazy to wash out a snifter. No freshness date

Pours a deep gold with two fingers of foam. Alright retention, thick lacing, mild carbonation. Aroma of hops, some citrus, spicy pine resin, caramel malts, and some alcohol. Taste of strong hops, lemons, orange, caramel malts, and quite a boozy finish- alcohol really needs to be concealed better. Feel is dry and medium bodied, chewy, not the most drinkable. Overall good to try, but I wont get it again

A-Pours a murky caramel color. Head is full. It leaves creamy remnants along the glass. Quite turbid.

S-Candied citrus hops and pine. Spicy hoppiness too. Plenty of malt backing. The hops hit me first but there is enough balance here. Wet, caramel glazed biscuits. Definitely not my favorite hop profile. Maybe I will enjoy the flavor more...

T-More candied citrus fruits a some tangy grapefruit. Herbal and spicy too. Soggy hop leaves. The beer is also a bit too balanced for me as well. The malt is quite broad. Sweet bread that seems to be ever-rising. A bit grainy.

M-Boozier than I want. The feel is sappy and resiny. Dry with definite bitterness. Full bodied. Round feel.

O/D-Not what I am looking for in a DIPA. Not my favorite flavors hop-wise. The malt sits too heavily as well.

Poirs clear copper with creamy one finger head. Aroma is very sweet grapefruit and mango with some caramel malt candy smell. Very nice. Flavor is fruity caramel. Pretty resiny and medium-heavy on the palate. Definitely on the malty side for the style, nearing some of the more hoppy barleywines I have had. Still a nice pine hop presence up front. Very little booze flavor but enough bite to know it is an imperial. Nice beer.
