3.9/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Slightly hazy, dark amber color with over two fingers of persistent cinnamon-tinted foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.
S: Pineapple dominates, smelling fresh and succulent. Dankness lies more deep, understated compared to the fruit, but still there. Understated caramel is also present, suggesting added sweetness. No alcohol is detected.
T: Begins off-dry, with bright mixed citrus and herbaceous hop aromatics. Acidity is dynamic, especially at the back of the palate, enhancing early citric qualities. Flavors stay fruity in the slightly spirituous middle, showing more esters that hop influences, though not really achieving the distinct tropical fruit qualities from the smell. Bitterness is quick to develop before the finish, but carries through to the end at a moderate intensity. The profile here shows minor caramel malt that lends a husky quality, and honeydew melon appears late.
M: Thin to medium viscosity on the palate, wet on the palate initially then turning sticky, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: While the sensory profile is a bit simplistic, focused on hop qualities that are distinctly of the Centennial cultivar, the complete DIPA package is noteworthy for the style. The pour produces a voluminous head, but the impressive display is constrained by the dark translucence of the appearance. This beer is not a risk-taker--which pays off, since it has been able to achieve legendary status among the mid-continent contributions to the style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours red amber with white head. Smells of citrus hops nice welcome. Tastes of citrus with very nice sweet malt, but still enough hop bite that it dominates. Beer is medium bodied slightly heavily carbonated. Overall a very good beer.
