Draft at uber. Pours a cloudy grainy medium amber with a loose white head. Lots of stringy lace. Big juicy fruity nose, lots of mango, pineapple, and caramel. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Darkly toasted caramel with mango, pineapple, and orange juice on the mid palate. Sudden sharp acetic dry finish.

Clear dark amber color with ivory head. Nice pine, floral, skunky, ganja bud aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Floral, fruity hop flavors with a big caramel sweet base--light booze to finish----tasty

On tap @ Uber. Pours orange golden with thin lacey head. Aroma is big sticky malt and thin floral hops. Taste is heavy caramel malt with earthy bitter hops on the finish. Nice hops, but malt heavy for a DIPA. Plenty of booze. Not bad though. I think this is Big Al’s first DIPA, so more soon hopefully.

On tap at PIB, pours a murky dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of dry piney and resinous hops, with a solid caramel malt backbone. Flavour brings out resinous hops upfront, balanced with a fat whopping caramel malt backbone. Well-balanced, but perhaps with too thick a malt profile. Good stuff, but the malt leaves some residual sugars that aren’t the most pleasant.
