A 16 oz bottle.

Pours pretty nicely. Dark clear orange with good white head and lacing.

Nose is musty and brandy.

Taste is musty which I find strange for this style. Also a good dose of apricot and malt. Overall pretty warming due to the high alcohol content as well.

This beer has average mouth feel. I have had many better. I had trouble getting past the earthy musty taste. The rest was OK.

Had it at Gracie's Place in a bomber and shared it with a buddy, the appearance was not very consistent with other DIPA's just slightly darker than wet straw. The aroma of the hops is great, very pungent but the actual flavor does not stay true to the smell. A quick burst of hop flavor possibly amarillo but it fades very quickly. The aftertaste is good though it lingers slightly but not overwhelming, just a hint to remind you of the initial smell. Overall not bad but it is very light for being a DIPA

On tap at hops and pie. I didn't want to pay $10 for a bomber but I was still curious so I bought a 3oz glass. Thank God I didn't order anything larger. Dark amber color, good head. Smells sort of hoppy but also malty, uh-oh. The taste was very hoppy but was beat down but a syrupy sweetness and a malty flavor I did not like. I'm sorry but most brewers should not bother brewing IPA's or DIPA's unless they can make a true West Coast style IPA. Everything else is just wack.
