3.35/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 12oz bottle into Chimay Glassware.
A- Slightly hazy amber color with slight head retention and lacing.
S- Nose not as much as I expected. Heavy caramel malt component with like an orange pine hop smell, but way too much malt for my taste.
T- Well taste starts as that caramel malt flavor, which I really don't like in a double IPA, then transitions to a orange pine and definate dry pine on the back end.
M- Not as crisp as any IPA, very malty with little carbonation. Don't understand why this is so malty, I know its a double and needs the malt but this is like brown shugga mixed with blind pig.
D- Yes I could drink this, but I don't consider this a DIPA, it doesn't have enough hops or carbonation, way too sweet for me. 8% is virtually unnoticable though.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
