look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip. Thanks to DEK196 for including this in a trade.

L: Clear dark copper brown pour. Massive foamy white head. Great lacing.

S: Caramel malts and sweetness. Floral and piney hops.

T/F: Rich dark caramel malts lend it a definite sweetness. There's bitterness here but well masked. The hop profile tends to the floral and pine. A little citrus mixed, but in the background. Earthy... a little thick in body for an IPA (for my taste at least)... well carbonated. Finish is sticky, resinous, and a little sweet.

O: Fairly average for a DIPA. Tends a bit too far towards the malty/sweet for my taste. Not bad... and certainly drinkable, but not one I'd go out of my way to revisit. Glad I had the chance to try it.

Clear copper orange with a foamy white head that laces well. Smells of sweet caramel malt, a pinch of citrus, and herbal and piney hops. Flavor follows with a ton of burnt sugary sweetness. Feel is slick and coats the mouth. Medium feel with good carbonation. Overall, this beer looks pretty inside and out of the bottle but doesn't offer much more for me. Cheers!

"...bitter aggressive IPA" with pine hops and just right malt balance. A very good DIPA.

on tap at Westlake tap room

orange pour with a nice head. muted smell of hops, citrus and malt. not as bitter or hoppy as I was hoping for, given the description.

mild citrus and hop bitterness.
