this is about 3 months old based on the cap. The aroma and hop bite are still strong. I think I prefer the Fatamorgana, but this is very good.

Bottled dated 7/13/17, meaning it was bottled on 7/13/15; drank on 10/17/15 in a tulip glass; not sure I would want this beer to age an extended period of time

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep opaque amber orange, with a little bit of rising carbonation, and also a bit noticeable. Head is relatively small, manages at least slightly larger than two fingers, and has very good retention. Soft white in color, with some creamy character and island puck appearances, with ring like lacing as well. Decent looking IPA.

Aroma takes a turn for hop bomb, but manages excellent balance with some distinct characters. Creamy vanilla aromas and mild sweet malts, with sensing amounts of caramel and icing sugar. Hop angle goes for subtlety with slightly dank, slightly juiced but with a tea like earthy quality. Inviting, not large, but also buried.

The first taste is quite surprising as a quick biscuit malt hits the palate at first. This is quickly knocked down with a sharp hop cutting through nicely in the middle, juiced but also pine and very dry like in flavor. Lots of sharp tea and similar qualities with a very light body passing over the tongue. Finishes with a nice mix of powdered dry grain malt and flour, with a large hop bent, that accents much of the tea and dry herbal angles present. Big leafy herbs and slight orange on the finish as well, just a touch of toast in a style that doesn't exhude malt character which is a nice surprise.

Real interesting take on a large DIPA for a change. Not mind blowing, but definitely in a unique realm all it's own.

Kind of your typical IPA. Nothing special or new to stand out. By no means a bad beer, but with the glut of better beers on the market for cheaper, not one I'll be returning to soon.

World class DIPA. Strong, straightforward bitter notes using traditional west coast hops. Bangin!

A: Hazy orange/amber hue. Nice head that fades fast with some lacing. S: caramel, malty, toasty, orangey/citrus. T: malty caramel flavors burst through strong. Followed by an orange pith. Bitterness becomes over bearing near the end. No booziness for 8.5%. M: carbonation is solid, crisp and biting. Not creamy or juicy. O: solid DIPA, but less caramel flavoring would make it a more impressive beer. The lack of booziness is superb and is quite an easy drinker. Wouldn't pick it up again unless it was in tap.
