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.
