Bottled 9/17/14. Pours a well carbonated deep golden glass with very little head lingering as time passes. Nose is big time boozy. Some hop profile in the nose but it definitely takes a back seat to the boozy, malty caramel notes. Taste is enjoyable. No burn but some bite. Sweet malt character shines through. Some brief hop notes in the finish. More hops in the aftertaste than anything. Mouthfeel is thick and heavy. Overall I really enjoyed this. Loved the fresh aspect of it. And while boozy, it was not at all overwhelming. Enjoyable in small quantities.

Appearance: Pours out a bright orange as it flows into your glass, it gets a bit darker-a brownish/orange murky color towards the center. Mild carbonation, and a nice had on top. The head is an off white color and thins out into a multitude of islands covering the top of the beer. Very strong lacing in this ale marks every sip you take.
Smell: Strong hops, grapefruit and orange zest, you can pick up a slight melon aroma the first second on every sniff. There are some other spices I here that make this one hell of a great smelling ale.
Taste: This has a very complicated taste to it, the dryness hits you first and then it breaks up into a whole mess of flavors, hops, orange zest, spices and more. Its very earthy for a DIPA and not overpowering with hops either. Grapefruit and brown sugar seem to mix together as it moves toward the back of your throat. The alcohol is up front in this ale. Its mildly tart on the edges of your mouth.
Mouthfeel: Starts of smooth for the first quick half second, semi dry and full bodied. The alcohol becomes most evident right before you swallow.
Overall: This is one great DIPA and was well worth the wait, I can’t wait to taste this one again, definitely one of the best beers I’ve had in a while.

Definitely one of my favorite beers of all time. I think a majority of it has to do with the fact that I enjoy the sweetness that hits you first from the malts on this one. Definitely a chance of pace from other IPAs
