poured from draft. Pours a dark orange color with a foamy head.

very aromatic with notes of hops, navel oranges, and all sorts of other citrus aromas.

Full bodied, but lacking a bit on the mid and finish. Balanced with good flavors of navel oranges and hops.

This was a very good DIPA. Decent depth on both with bigger notes as well. Not the most complex DIPA though.

Acquired from Haymarket Pub and Brewery in beautiful Chicago, IL. Drank out of a Toppling Goliath King Sue teku.

Look: Dark copper/brass color. Poured with a finger and a half of white head with decent head retention. Highly carbonated with small, fast down-up bubbles.

Smell: Tropical fruit, citrus, biscuit malt, booze, a bit of floral smell.

Taste: Floral notes come out more in the palate, nice dankness, candied orange, alcohol sweetness, fluffy biscuit, sweet on the back palate with light lingering bitterness.

Feel: Light side of heavy mouthfeel, great viscosity, well balanced carbonation with a bit of prickliness, slick and coating. Very good. Although I prefer Mathias, the feel of Aleister is just killer. Yes.

On tap at the brewpub. First try for me. Crushable DIPA. Went down way to fast. I'd get another, but there are too many here to try. No Mathias today.
