Clear amber appearance. This might have been an old can, but it tasted very malty and overly sweet. Was not pleasant or easy to drink.

Always looking forward to a DIPA. Never know what I am going to get. This one poured a relatively light color, not the typical orange hue. I did not detect any real strong presence of grapefruit, resin and other normal aromas associated with hoppy IPAs

There was a good amount of malt in this one. Perhaps a bit too much. It create a beer that was big and smooth, not something I generally think of in an IPA and never in a DIPA.

Big round finish. Not overall exciting, but worth the try

Good cloudy look but very little in the way head lacing etc... Smell was lemon citrus. Way too much hop bite on the taste. Not a bad beer has some good components and potential. The bite is too much for this palate!
