Bottle to CBS Snifter.

A - Medium slightly cloudy orange colour with a big glow. One finger of bubbly cream coloured head.

S - Big pine and grapefruit aromas accompanied a huge bitterness. There's the faintest hint of sweetness in the background. Definitely a hop-bomb.

T - A massive bitterness up front with big pine and grapefruit notes. Not much of a malt presence at all. The hops are fresh and juicy.

M - Medium body. Chewy and full of resiny hop oils. Light carbonation.

O - A very good DIPA but I would have loved to see a little more flavour contribution from the hops. Not lacking in bitterness at all.

Thanks rfraga77 for the bottle, great trading with you!

22 oz. Bottle split between two wine glasses.

A: orange, decent clarity, half finger white head, good lacing.

N: grapefruit. Bright hoppiness, some zesty citrus with decent maltiness in background.

T: bitter citrus hops predominate, some alcohol, get some faint watermelon, finish is malty sweet.

M: crisp, good carbonation, no issues here.

O: very approachable for a DIPA, nice malt balance, not overly alcoholly, definitely recommend.

Really impressive pour. Semi cloudy thanks to a ton of floating matter, totally loaded with hops. Promising!!

Huge hoppy nose, enticing and inviting.

Taste more bitter hops than malt, but not offensive at all. The malt backbone is big enough to take it...

Alcohol totally muted, wow.

Sticky messy glass after...nice.
