Look – Trampoline on top. Looks viscous. Amber-orange. Didn’t get a lot of head.

Smell – Uncooked loaf of bread. Grapefruit. Cheap cologne “after smell.” Faintly dank. You know it is an IPA.

Taste – Malty. Citrusy. Alcohol is there but quickly fades.

Feel – Viscous. Smooth and sticky.

Overall – Enough differentiation to write home about this one. For those who say the D stands for Dank in DIPA, not quite there, but close enough. Equally matched with old school beer taste and citrus.

A great DIPA from my favorite Ohio brewery. A good malt backbone to this hop-forward beer. Nice slightly creamy mouthfeel.

From a howler right from the taproom.

A - Mostly clear, copper-orange pour that doesnt yield a large head, but retains a solid frothy, film like (think Guinness) layer on top that leaves lacing behind like it's going out of style.

S - Lots of malt. Very bready, like homemade dough. Some tropical fruits. Not real in your face hops, but there does seem to be some resinous pine there too.

T - I would say it is one of the more malt forward DIPAs I have had. There is still plenty of hops to balance it out on the back side. Very citrusy and tropical, but not just the typical grapefruit/pineapple. Very juicy, and works very well with the strong malt base. Some bitterness surfaces in the middle to remind you it's an IPA, along with a little bit of a peppery kick, then is calmed back down by a subtle caramel sweetness like a mother gently rocking her baby to sleep. Finish is as smooth as a dolphins ass.

F - Very creamy. I can't overstate that aspect. The only other DIPAs that I can think of with this mouth feel are Lawson's SoS, and Heady. Very surprising given the predominantly clear appearance. Carbonation seems to be on the lower side, which also makes me wonder where the nitro-like head comes from.

O - Who said Jackie O's couldn't do non-barrel aged? Seriously? I have actually never heard that... In all actual seriousness, this is Incredibly smooth, great variety of flavors that play well with each other. Alcohol is slighy noticeable, and it is probably a hair on the malty/syrupy side (for majority, not me) but those are my nitpicking items. Now I will be dreaming of the day they tweet that they are bottling/canning Waka.
