4.8/5 rDev +17.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
A: Dark orange/brown and cloudy.
S: One of the best smelling beers I've had. Malty sweetness and alcohol primarily. There are also notes of dark fruits. I can smell some hops too. Very complex nose.
T: Not like what you think an IPA should taste like (but that's not a bad thing!). Warming alcohol flavors, raisin, plum, hops, caramel sweetness. Like the nose, the flavors are very complex and yet blend together perfectly. Although the alcohol adds some flavor it is hidden extremely well considering the 18% ABV.
M: Sticky, syrup like essence. DFH has made a beer that has the richness of melted down candy but made it very enjoyable.
Overall, a stellar beer that any hophead needs to try. The complex, dark, sugary nose and flavor are delicious on a cold night with friends. If it wasn't for the rarity (at least in Texas) and the price this would be a weekly drink.
Serving type: on-tap

Served in Chimay chalice
A deep orange color, with a thin white fizzy head.
Very hoppy, citrus and bitter hops competing in the front with a sweet smell if you search for it.
Way to sweet for its own good, almost like a Spaten Optimutor. The sweetness is way to much, and is followed by a slight bitter. I have a hard time picking out any flavors.
Heavy and oily, less carbonation than expecting.
I love me some hops, but if I wanted something this sweet I could drink soda. Still better than a AAL.

4.34/5 rDev +6.6%

bottled on 2012
A: pours a nice brown color with an orange hue to it and when held up to the light it becomes an awesome dark orange color and you can see some floaties. pours about 1 fingers worth of head formation that is beige in color
S: huge hops rush to the nostrils during the pour. immense grapefruit, orange peel and even some subtle lemon zest are also pretty evident and integrate very nicely with a huge malty and sugary sweetness. to be honest, the alcohol is extremely well hidden.
T: huge sugary and malt sweetness is noticed right up front and it has a great hop profile. citrus and grapefruit still present and there's a big creamy finish. again, for 18%, the alcohol is balanced nicely with the big sweet backbone
M: heavy side of medium bodied, leaves a big sugary sweetness that sticks to the teeth and the palate. the alcohol is warming, but inviting
O: this was one of the first brews i had when i got onto the craft beer scene and it was too strong. but this is simply amazing to me right now. i find this well balanced for 18% and i will definitely be grabbing more of these
