Poured a deep caramel red, a bit hazy with a nice thick sticky head.

The smell is fine with a nice herbal hops and sweet caramel, good, but a bit lacking on the hops for double.

I really like the flavor, tastes very herbal and medicinal, very nuggetty. The hops are very balanced with the big caramel sweetness and a bit of alcohol.

The mouthfeel has a medium thickness with a nice resiny finish.

A pretty solid double, I liked that it wasn't as west coast as most.

Dark and cloudy amber, like a very heartily brewed IPA.

Smells strangely, wonderfully herbal. Like citrus hops and oregano. The blend of bitter, sweet, and savory was honestly shocking at first--I thought maybe my glass was dirty, or something--but after several sips I grew accustom to it, and man it was pretty darn good. A little unbalanced, though, and sort of syrupy in the back end.

So so many brewers take the DIPA as an off day sort of beer--just toss a bunch of stuff in and watch the 4.3ish reviews pour in on the BA. This is a beer for hop heads, yes, but it'll also impress jaded veteran-types, like myself, who are sick and tired of hop bombs getting haled.
