Hopefully I will have a mouth full of hops when this one has completed it's transition to my face. The pour didn't yield much of a head, more big bubbles than anything. The color is a rich coppery red, cloudy as can be.

I feel like a kid again after taking my first whiff. The initial passion fruit sweetness is packed full of fruit snack and bubblegum flavors. After I sit and try to make sense of a perplexing aroma, I realize I can't detect any alcohol or harshness, from chilled to room temp. Ripened fruit, toasty caramel, and wood all dance the floor.

This almost drinks like a barleywine, the malt profile seems so sophisticated with sweet and toasty flavors I almost forget the hops. Overripe fruit and oak cement my feelings that this may be a tad bit past the date for a DIPA. There is no date on the bottle for me to verify. Nonetheless, the bitterness is there, it's just not the citrusy grapefruit bomb I was anticipating, and it is well challenged by everything else going on.

The body is medium, but the feel is confounding. The carbonation has no inhibitions; it starts crisp and begins to leave a cottony sensation. A chalky yet resiny earthy aftertaste that lingers for infinity.

As far as a DIPA goes... I'm not sure I'm convinced by the hop profile. Perhaps it's the age of the beer (unknown), but I am sure that I like it. The ease in which the alcohol is masked is impressive, as well as the maturity of the backbone. Whatever phylum, genus, or species this one falls in to.... it's good.
