What a luscious, lovely beer! I let it warm up some out of my cold fridge. Poured with a thick, foamy, frothy, creamy, light tan head and lots of lace. Color is a clear medium orange, copper, amber. Aroma at first was hops, malt, and yeast; then I got pineapple, grapefruit, cherries, cigar. Flavor is much the same and has interplay between the heavy hop and malt sweetness. Very full, round, lush body with perfect carbonation to cut through it. Finish has some hints of the alcohol and ends up a wisps of lingering sweetness. Good for session sipping.

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass

a - dark, deep red heading towards blackish brown. Thick but shallow head the slowly fades into thick treackly lacing with some visible patches of head remaining on top. Pretty gorgeous.

s - doughy, hefty malt base with similarly hefty, dirty slightly sweet hops.

t - can't fault it, this tastes like it smells. very smooth, dry bitter finish as you'd expect from a 100IBU beer. The alcohol's noticeably present but not overpowering. Quite a lot's going on in this beer without it being either contradictory or overwhelimg.

m - thick, smooth, satisfying but manages to stay on the right side of cloying

o - Awesome beer. It's not a traditional IIPA, but it's not so out there you go "WTF am I drinking?". I've had slightly better beers in this style, but not many. Gives Stone Double Bastard (which I love) a total kicking and leaves Brewdog Hardcore (which I also love) trying to get the name of the bus that hit it.

L: Pours hazy iced tea to coffee color under a moussey and clingy off-white foam collar.
S: Spicy slightly tart nose with traces of fruit, malt and rye.
T: Big barley backbone with plum, pear, citrus, grape, and grains. Lingering dark rye bread flavors with a bread crust citrus rind bitter accent.
F: Very creamy, full bodied with slight warming.
O: Very rich and fruity. One of the more interesting, complex DIPAs out there that features sophisticated hopping.
