32oz growler from Wine and Beyond Emerald Hills.
This beer pours a hazy, mildly glassy medium copper amber hue, with two hefty fingers of filmy, loosely foamy, and yet somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves a decent array of ghoulish cobwebbed lace around the glass as it gently subsides.
It smells of bready, yeasty caramel malt, a touch of dry toffee, citrus cream, muted pine resin, and further musty floral and boozy perfumed hops. The taste is sharp caramel malt, soused white raisins, piny flower petals, airy creamed toffee, and warmed orange juice, with a bristling metallic booziness.
The carbonation is fairly laid-back, but that's not to say inert - it does well to provide the support this beer needs, the body a decent medium weight, mostly smooth, and even a tad creamy. It finishes on the sweet side, as the citrus fruit from the hops sheds the bulk of its bitterness, the malt keeps on keepin' on, and the alcohol shores things up likewise.
A drinkable DIPA, if one with a certain lack of acerbic hoppy goodness - the citrus, pine, and floral notes all seem sedated for the most part. At least the standard ABV does well to keep in the shadows, not entirely showing its hand. Perhaps more of an English-inspired version of the style, if that actually exists, as I'm getting more of a nascent barleywine nudge as this one warms.

Had this on tap at the Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas on May 29th. Was dying for something with hops as Vegas is pretty barren, when I saw this on the menu.
A - A nice amber color with orange hues, and a one finger white head.(Although it was pretty dark in the restaurant so this could be a bit off) Left nice lacing all the way down the glass.
S - Faint tropical and citrus hops with some flower as well. Some light caramel notes too. A little disappointed as there just wasn't a whole lot going on here.
T - Sweet malts up front, that quickly changes to some light tropical hops. Medium bitterness on the end.
M - Medium to full body, chewy, medium carbonation. Smooth.
O - Decent beer, it just falls short on the hops in the aroma and taste department for what I want in a Double IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
