Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned recently. Pours a very attractive dark amber with a 3 finger off white head that leaves behind streaks of lace.

Smell is apricot, caramel , biscuit, toffee, pine resin, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows apricot, caramel, and toffee upfront leads to biscuit, pine, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is big, plenty of life, not really dry, and this is almost 12% ABV, never would have known.

Overall this is excellent, but DIPA no. Barleywine or Strong Ale would make more sense for me. Just as malty as hoppy.
