Great Lakes' beers just arrived in Albany this week (hooray!). I got a single of this at Olivers on 4/15/14. "Drink by" date on the bottle is 5/20/14; consumed on 4/17/14.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Body is clear coppery amber with small khaki-colored head. Some splotchy lace.

S: Sweet malt surprisingly dominates at first - think caramel malt & brown sugar. Hops are more noted after a little while: faint apricot and tropical fruits.

T: Follows the nose, with a sweet malt foundation - caramel malt, toffee - then tropiclal fruit (pineapple) hoppiness. Finishes with sweetness doing battle with the hops. Sweetness prevails, which is disappointing to me, as I like my DIPAs to have a strong hop bitterness.

M: Full in body; slighlty slick.

O: This is good, but not great.

Solid.

A - Burgandy - SRM 17. I wouldn't kick her out of bed
S - Sweet with hints of something I like. Malty. Not too hoppy.
T - Not bad. I'm still drinking.
M - Heavy.
O - Good beer. I would drink it every now and then.

This is a strong, drinkable beer. It's a little heavy for me. Not the alcohol content, but the overall beer itself. I would enjoy a little bit more of a hop kick.
