Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a hazy amber to brown color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light stringy lacing glossing along the sides of the glass. The smell had some light sweet citrus hops backed up by a decent sweet sticky caramel malt. The taste followed the aroma. On the palate, this one came through pretty sticky around my tongue. I say this sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still constrained enough to be a good beer. Overall, I say this was a decent DIPA I could have again though probably not necessarily one I would seek out again.

Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits like tangerine, ripe peach, overripe pineapple and also sweet malt. Taste starts with sweet malt, some fruity hops, but also some nasty stale note I get with some sips. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Overall it's not really bad but it has some off-flavors and it's also a bit boozy.

Pours a transparent amber with a half finger head of small bubbles. Smells of orange and sugary sweetness. Very light mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation, and hops on the back end. Nice and balanced, not overpowering. Would not have guessed this was 9% alcohol.

Fresh at the source, not who knows how old and malty from an undated bottle.

Very good DIPA. Tropical cherry, strawberry & Orange starburst candy and sticky dank pine hops in the back. Dry in the finish. I would definitely have this again at the source or if assured a fresh bottle.

Solid stuff.
