4.43/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- a crystal clear amber with ruby highlights. A nice dense head, that dissipates quickly (it's 10% afterall)
S- I love the smell on this. So much going on. The hops shift from piney, to citric, to earthy, there's malt notes of biscuits, caramel, toffee, and a hint of molasses. DFH's yeast strain is in there as well.
T- all of the things I picked up in the nose are in the taste, although slightly muted under the hops, and a bit of a boozy taste. I really love the oaky/vanilla hints. The old ale components open up the taste (caramel/toffee/biscuits), and the 90 minute component finishes it off with big grapefruit and pine notes. Boozy flavor on the finish as well.
M- creamy, tight carbonation moves the flavor along, but the astringent and boozy finish is a bit aggressive.
O- 90 minute on steroids. Really oaky, malty steroids. A must try.

4.1/5 rDev -3.1%

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, oak, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, light vanilla, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent oak aged DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
