12 oz. can:

Pours hazed orange amber to copper with a white head that soon thins, leaving little lacing.

The smell is of strong caramel with subtle tropical/citric fruit and some peppery alcohol.

The taste is of caramel with peppery/spicy alcohol. Some tropical fruit and an herbal bitterness show in the finish.

It has a chewy, oily, thick-ish body. A little sticky.

Nothing really special about this one. Caramel is very strong. Hops break through the massive malt character, but their flavor could stand out a bit more. Seems more like an American strong ale or American barleywine, though it fits well enough into DIPA.

Picked up for about $10 a four-pack at Fred Meyer's in Bremerton, WA.
It's decent enough, but personally doubt I would get again.

Exceptional beer from a top notch brewery. This is one of my all time favorite beers, so incredibly drinkable. Very flavorful, very smooth!

Had a real brown appearance to it, India Brown Ale might be a better descriptor for this one. Seemed to be lacking clarity. Off white head, 1/3". Aroma lacked dry hopping, some earthen hops, I guess that makes them Euro noble kind.

Taste brought tobacco with some hops and bitterness. Brown malt. Plenty of booziness. Toffee and tea notes.

This really doesn't taste like much of a dipa. More like a strong brown ale in the 40ibu range.
