This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-hazy bronzed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing speckles the sides nicely. The smell starts off with a sly citrus pulp and rind and slides into a subtle nice malt. The taste was moderately bitter with an ample sweetness of the citrus combining nicely in a sticky fashion. Subtle tobacco rides into the aftertaste and grabs the citrus to slide into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seems good for the style and for me. Overall, for a DIPA, its a good one, there’ s nothing wrong with it, I could see myself having this again.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass bottled on 12/7/15 and says 8.5% ABV. Pours a dark yellow with a 2 inch sticky white head that leaves webs of lace behind.

Smell is papaya, peach, hard candy, pine, and grapefruit, I wish it wasn't over 100 old, but solid.

Taste follows tropical upfront papaya, peach, tangerine and some pine, lemon rind, and grapefruit in the finish.

Mouthfeel is almost medium, with lite carbonation, juicy not dry, and very drinkable.

Overall I will review this again if I ever find it fresher. I will say this actually pretty darn good even out of its prime.

I actually thought this was a really good imperial IPA. Very hoppy, very bitter, but not too much of either. Best Foolproof offering I've tried so far.

First off, I can't believe this is a DIPA, or 9.5%. It pours yellow with a white head. It has very subtle grainy and light tropical fruit notes. Tastes like butter. It may have a very slight hint of pineapple, or some mild fruit, but I can hardly pick it out. Very buttery, not bitter or hoppy at all. It taste sweet if anything. DIPA? hmm.. Goes down pretty easy, moderate high carbonation, light-medium body. Overall not a bad beer, just not sure if it's a double/ imperial india pale ale.
