3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Above average. This is the original bottling, not the Endeavour version, so this had some age on it. I had this when it first came out and can say it has mellowed but not by much. The aroma is sweeter and has a floral essence. The color is a clear amber with virtually no head. Smooth, almost oily palate. The flavors have blended well but it has become sweeter with the hops bitterness dropping slightly. Alcohol is still present and the carbonation has lessened a little. Still a good brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy citrus, tropical and stone fruits, mild pine, light caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate to strong bitter. (7/10) Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (4/5)
Very pleasant, mild-mannered and well-behaved DIPA. The sweetness is definitely present, but balanced nicely without being overwhelming. The balance extends to the ABV, which is nearly completely absent despite being nearly into the double digits. (15/20)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated from an Endeavour bomber. Orange color with a thin off white head. Nose of citrus and stone fruit and candy. If they made a hop flavored Jolly Rancher candy (and I wish they did) it would taste like this. Lots of sweetness with tons of peach, red grapefruit, apricot, and orange marmalade. Nice balance for such a big beer.

Cervesa molt aromàtica, en boca hi ha un gran equilibri entre maltes i llúpol que li aporten un toc dolç i un amargor més baix.

Actual DR11 bottle dug out of the back of the fridge. There’s still one back there so next time I should grab an Endeavour bomber to compare against. Still tastes fresh though I believe the aroma has lost some of its intensity. Pine resin and grapefruit with tropical fruit notes.

sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Deep golden with one finger head. Well balanced DIPA. Not particularly unique, but a quality brew nonetheless.

On tap at Munich Tap-House. Clear amber, decent head. Nice citrussy and piney hop nose, good hop bitterness in the mouth. Strangely easy drinking, but nice.
