Bottled 5/11/14, a nice surprise since I thought this was a winter seasonal.
Poured into tulip; dark orange-gold, clear with a minimal white head that fades but leaves tons of delicate lacing.
Smells boozy and sweet, like fruit and fermented honey.
Taste is almost overpoweringly sweet, until the hops come in and save the day at the last second. They bring piney bitterness along with juicy citrus and tropical fruits. Less Mosaic character than I would have hoped for.
Mouthfeel is oily, and it has quite a body even for a DIPA.
Overall, this is a DIPA built like a barleywine with the hops to back it up. Almost too sweet, but the hops balance it well enough. Not for the faint of heart!
