Ready to take it to the next level? This DIPA is fueled by hop flavor and aroma with enough bitterness to back the big malt body. Enjoy responsibly, this one’s aptly named.

Nitro tap at the brewery. This brew was a little too hot with the alcohol. I was surprised that the heat was so easy to detect. It was 8.5% but I could have believed it was 10+ could be the Nitro tap letting more of that through. The hops are there for a double IPA but I didn’t get the malt backbone I was epecting. I’d go for their smoked amber over this DIPA next time.

On tap at Honey Tupelo Cafe. Translucent dark amber with small beige head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is grapefruit, some resin, a little herbal hops, and long bitter finish. Not one the best for the style, but not bad.

deep amber color - almost brown; piney hop and caramel malt aroma; lots of piney hops on a medium-bodied malt base

7/6/14. Bomber. Pours a dark copper with minimal hard and lacing. Agree w jrob that it tastes more like a barleywine. Very sweet and malty for a DIPA. Gives some of the the mouthfeel that high ABV gives but the hop forward I like in a DIPA is lost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bestway. Bordering on barleywine. Syrupy sweet with a caramel and candi sugar malt profile. Toffee flavors as well. Herbal tea aromas. Finish is sweet caramel. Need more hops please.

Bomber from 201. Deep amber, slightly hazy. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with floral hops, pomegranate, clove in there as well. Flavor is overly malty for this style and no hops stand out. Smooth alcohol warming and medium bodied. Overall this brew missed the mark as an Imperial for me.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 On tap at Alexander Michael’s. Pours a copper color with white head. Piney, hoppy, grassy aromas. Strong hoppy, resiny flavors. Meh, doesn’t do it for me.

Clear dark orange with small light brown foam head. Aroma is very hoppy and real bitter taste. Lasting aftertaste. (Houston 201310)
