Sweet and spicy light barleywine in DIPA clothing.
A: Very clear amber body with a somewhat persistent one finger tight off white head.
S: Very inviting... bright, effervescent, light citrus, fruity, and spicy hops with a subtle pillow of toasty caramel malt underneat... just a beautiful, delicate, fine aroma.
T: Wow... incredibly sweet... malts are toasty and nutty as opposed to the usual caramel, though butter is definitely there. Not at all a DIPA experience. Large amounts of spices come through, and the hops form the edges of the flavor rather than being tasted blatantly. Hop bitterness comes though on the finish.
M: Light and airy like fine whipped cream.
Serving type: bottle
