Most complex DIPA I've ever had. Loads and loads of character from the barrel.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served initially at 50 degrees F (from my beer fridge) in a angular, tapered Chardonnay glass. Second pour from same bomber re-chilled to 40 degrees (per brewer to be well filled and then consumed while slowly warmed in hand)

L: Amazing appearance. Dark orange, almost ruby in appearance-slightly cloudy when well chilled (clearly unfiltered). 1.5 fingers of straw colored foam, excellent, delicate lacing and retention.

S: Not as much depth in the nose as expected. Huge malt profile, particularly toffee malt, with subtle tropical fruit and a large resinous characteristic

T: Subtle tropical fruit up front some pineapple, lemon zest, maybe mango? Fading into heavy toffee malt in the mid palate with a lingering piney resinous finish and mild to moderate fading bitterness on the back palate that subtlety lingers and leaves one wanting more fruit from the next drink

F: Amazing, full bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Among the best from a DIPA I have experienced

O: I wish that I would have opened thus sooner. Bottled approximately 2 months ago and I feel like some of the citrus notes likely faded. If there was a half grade more citrus this would be spectacular, and it was when I had this previously on my first shipment (which was admittedly hopped differently so that could also be the difference)
