Thanks to dujayhawk for this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into pint glass (primarily because I failed to read the directions...oops).
A: Hazy, translucent ruddy amber, with a one and a half finger white head and great visible carbonation.
S: Seems diminished overall - kind of weak. But what is there is sweet caramel malt, citrus/orange hops. I'm going to bump up the score a half point from what it would have been, as I suspect the overall impact of the aroma would have been enhanced if I used a snifter as the bottle label requested.
T: Starts with caramel and toffee malty sweetness with some citrus hops, then fades into a nice pine bitterness, and the hang is citrus pith & caramel sweetness. Very well balanced on the tongue.
M: Fairly highly carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Pronounced alcohol presence but stops just short of detracting.
O: A good beer that toes the line between DIPA and barleywine. I'm a little sad I didn't pour it into the appropriate glassware. Recommended to try, but I don't think I'll actively search another one out.
