Bottled on 5/13/15...so quite a bit of age here.Pours a rich brass color with a half finger white head that settles pretty slowly.Sweet caramel and resinous hops in the nose,quite sweet but a good bitter edge.Quite sweet on the palate with sugary and caramel notes,the bitter pith hops make for a nice finish.It's like alot of DIPA's in it's big sweetness but I do like the sharp finish.

Bottle from mikem409, Thanks
Bottled 5/13/15 so not expecting much from this double IPA
Quite a hazy deep golden color with a huge bubbly off white head that persists forever. Lots of bready caramel and bits of citrus pine and juicy fruity tropical fruits on the nose. Bitter pithy citrus flavor is a bit overwhelming. Some bready sweet caramel malt flavor barely balances the harsh bitterness. Light alcohol notes and a lingering bitter finish. A bit harsh but not horrible.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/13/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, strawberry, mango, melon, passion fruit, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, strawberry, mango, melon, passion fruit, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, strawberry, mango, melon, passion fruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible DIPA style. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

With the type of hops used I was expecting more in terms of flavor and aroma....feel like the malt still dominated the aroma and taste in this beer. It was very good, however from the hops that were used I did not get the taste I have come to get from other beers with Citra, Galaxy, hops......could be the Belma hops, particularly not a fan of the Belma hops, but that's another convo :)

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange with a two-finger foamy white head. The head receds to a small ring leaving a nice sticky lacing.

S - Aroma is orange, pineapple, mango, and caramel malts.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Caramel malts with lots of juicy citrus flavors. There is a nice amount of piney hops isn the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a crisp dry finish.

O - Another strong DIPA from Tapistry. There is a nice balance of citrus, malts, & hops. Definetly worth checking out.
