Pours a nice clear copper color. The head is off-white with excellent retention and moderate lacing. There is a good amount of visible carbonation.
The nose is mostly pine hops with some caramel malts to back it up. Simple but effective.
The taste balanced quite well. You get a nice piney hops kick to the throat buts its mellowed down with a malty sweetness that is just right.
Mouth feel is a bit heavy. Thick but with decent carbonation to lift it up.

I had this IPA at the Mad Dog in San Antonio. It wasn't my favorite DIPA but it was good.

Look: reddish brown with a thin off-white head

Aroma: sweet caramel, citrus and pine

Taste: Sweet caramel, grapefruity and piney bitterness, quite good but a bit on the sweet side.

Feel: medium body.

Date is smudged but I think it says 5th or 6th month, 12th day, 2017. One or two months old.

A: Pours a clear dark amber with a tall light brown head. Excellent head retention as it doesn't like to fade out at all. Heavy and thick walls of lacing to boot.

S: Citrusy and sweet. Definitely a lot of malt base.

T: More of the same, citrusy hops up front and then a tidal wave of sweetness. Heavy caramel malt makes for a syrupy sweet base. Hops kick back in in the finish, sort of a citrusy but also herbal and piney hop hit.

M: Heavy, syrupy at times.

O: Hmph, a very malt-focused DIPA for sure. Very heavy on the caramel, not a ton of hops in this one. More for the "balanced IPA' lovers.
