Poured out of a fresh Crowler into a 13 Free Will Teku glass. Pours a very clear bright orange with a fairly large 2 plus finger white head that leaves plenty of gobby lace and speckled spots of lace.

Smell is tangerine, apricot, a tad dank marijuana, hard candy, pine resin, and grapefruit.

Taste follows tangerine, apricot, and marijuana starts the party with hard candy, pine, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is pretty large, mild carbonation, definetly a tad dry, and excellent drinkability for its hefty 8.4% ABV.

Overall this is a glorious old school DIPA, that has some nice bitterness, dank hops, and that really all play well together. 1600 official beer thanks jzeilinger for this excellent DIPA.

Poured from a 32 oz Crowler.

A - Dark gold colored pour with thick, pronounced white lacing and mild carbonation.

S - Dank, and resiny tropical fruit aroma that's slightly spicy, and earthy.

T - Tropical fruit spiciness, tropical fruit rind, and balanced out with just the right amount of malt. Finishes with low bitterness but leaves a peppery/spicy/fruity aftertaste that lingers. Very oily and very nice. Some alcohol pokes through early on but eventually the fruity, peppery, oily character completely masks any alcohol.

M - Thick, viscous, and oily. Leaves a dry finish on the top of the tongue.

O - This beer is an oily palate trasher. No complaints here.
