The standard caramel and dark copper color for a dipa. Good hop aroma, C hops in the house.

Taste dropped ample bitterness. Plenty of caramel, decent green leaf kind of hoppiness. The Cascade hops have a good shelf life compared to the proprietary aroma hops, so this holds steady like the awesome rock band.

Its pretty standard bomber fare. Overpriced compared to other 12 oz bottles of dipa, but at the same time, probably slightly below cost for bomber. Either way, its the standard kind of stuff, I will say it hides the alcohol pretty well.

22 Oz bottle. No bottling info

Pours a burnt orange body that is nearly clear, White head has some retention. Lots of thick lacing

Smell is not very prominent, I'm mainly getting malt

Taste is interesting . A peach malt sweetness along with a dark chocolate bitterness that I noticed at the finish. Slightly boozy

Medium to full feel. Not a lot of carbonation

A nice little DIPA

Poured a rich amber, substantial yet lightly textured head with tons of carbonation. Aroma is malt and citrus, bright and not at all swampy. Very nice. Flavor is quite sweet, but not unpleasantly so. It blends nicely with the bitter bite of the hops and clears the palate with exceptional ease. Double IPA's don't get much better than this. Mouthfeel is lovely. Light and breezy yet with enough texture to feel good as it runs through your mouth.

A--Beautiful reddish gold SRM 14/15, small head, nice lacing
S--caramel and malt, almost no dry hop presence
T--Again malty and sweet with hints of a caramel desert; not very hoppy or bitter. A smidge boozy.
M--easy, small carbonation, heavy on the back palate and lingering but somehow slightly crisp.
O--A decent DIPA; probably won't purchase again but nice for a sweeter iteration of the style. Not overpowering with some good flavors and not too boozy (although it could be a little less).

Dark amber brew with a modest veil of foam in the Het Kapittel chalice. Aroma of fermenting pineapple and a whiff of apricot. Hot with alcohol.

More dry and spicy than the typical DIPA. Lighter bodied as well. It's like a highly hopped-up Tripel. Some sugar but not heavily malty. Hugely hopped but not extremely bitter. A canned peach note. Darkly bitter aftertaste with some wood and dankness.

An interesting and less cloying DIPA that is quite sippable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggens Market in Burlington.
