651mL and various examples on tap. Pours a clear amber with a very thin, yellow, dense head with fair retention but sticky, webby, white lace. Aroma is pineapple, fruity/tropical hops, caramel malt, lemon, sweet candies, sweet cherries, passionfruit, incredible amount of fruit juice tropical notes. Taste brings very sticky sweet malt as the base with some serous alcohol presence. Big fruity tropical hops with an oily mouthfeel. No cloying. No newspaper. No nutty, nut skin bitterness. Fairly soft and easy to love. Nice. Pretty solid, fresh, DIPA.

Too strong. Taste the high alcohol contents. Regular IPA leaps and bounds better!

Above says it all. For those that think less is more and beer can be reviewed in less than 250 words see above. For others this was content required to submits review.
