Drank from a Duvel Tulip, best before 20/05/2014.

A - Orange to amber colours, head is big, big bubbles that fall apart quickly.

S - Citrus, lime, resin, pine, classic American hop aromas.

T - Big hit of citrus and grapefruit flavours, malt flavours are difficult to detect, finishes with a strong bitter hit, pretty tasty.

M - Kind of a hard, mineral like mouth feel, carbonation seems a bit heavy, the bitterness is really coating my mouth.

O - A tasty beer, good hop aroma and flavours, with a nice clean fermentation character.

Poured from a 16 oz can into DH IPA glass.

A: Golden hue. Tons of rising effervescence. Giant, fluffy, frothy, white head. Settles very slowly and craters unevenly. Lots of dry, sticky lacing.

S: Floral hops, lemon and grapefruit citrus, and pine resin.

T: Steely hop bite.

M: Bitter and moderately heavy body. Steely finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is really nice. Lots of effervescence, large head, and plenty of dry, sticky, lacing. Nose is floral, with citrus, and pine resin. Hoppy and steely. Overall, this is a good quaff.
