Received from @Jaymo18 by way of our first trade. Poured into a DFH Tulip.
A - Golden amber with almost a honey appearance. Little to no head retention and almost the same on the ring around the glass. Splotchy, slippery lacing. Minimal carbonation.
S - Sweet malts and honey are dominant, followed by pine resin, caramel, and spices. It's slightly muted, but starts to become more present after it warms up.
T - The flavors are very close to the aroma, except that there is a gorgeous, balanced hops presence. There are a lot of tropical fruit flavors that shine through on the palate.
M - Viscous, with a great balance of sugary sweetness and bitterness. There is not one way I can lean on the two...balanced perfectly. Slightly dry and mouth-coating.
O - This is a very well made DIPA. It reminds me of Hercules by Great Divide. I think its the sweetness of the malts that do it. I wish that it was distributed in my area. I will definitely
