Poured from a Hop Stoopid Priced bomber, obviously that means an actually good price!

Pours a copperish color half finger of light tan head, nice lacing

Smell is pineapple, bready and caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, a spicy note aswell. Smells like your average DIPA

Taste is a dose of bready malt followed by a some citrus, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pineapple, pine, spicey hop note, piney bitterness on the finish

Mouthfeel is medium full, carbonation is full and cleaning.

Decent offering here, glad I tried it. It is interesting, opens up malty but then hits you with the hops, kind of unique in that way, wish I knew the date instead of it just saying "Vintage 2014"

22 oz bottle shared. Sampled 8-10 oz in pint glass

A- Orange/copper. Filtered clean and clear.
S- A bit of citrus hops, but I also smell roasted malts
T- Floral up front, malty in the middle, and acidy hops on the end. I supprised by the malt breaking though. Could be the sweetness the imperial IPA.
M- Good standard DIPA feel. No thin BMC crap and not too thick either. Like a woman with average curves.
O- Didn't have very high expectations, and those were pretty much met. For an imperial IPA, I can think of many others I would rather have. I won't be seeking this out.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/1/2014. Pours lightly cloudy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, brown sugar, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and well balanced citrus hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, brown sugar, bread, floral, grass, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, brown sugar, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of juicy citrus hops and a good amount of caramel/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA style. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus hops and caramel/bready malt sweetness; and quite smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
