4.7/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into a tulip at fridge temp. Bottled 3/20/12.
A: Thin white half finger head sits on top of a slightly hazy straw yellow body. Head dissipated quickly and left a ring around the edge. Looks slightly oily.
S: Mango and pear with a dose of sweet malt. This is right up my alley.
T: The wonderful tropical fruit flavor from the nose carries into the flavor. The malt is present but is more floral and biscuity than sweet...and it’s a welcome break from the typical overly sweet DIPA malt profile.
M: Body is medium, texture slightly oily (but not off-putting), carbonation is lively and the finish is only slightly alcoholic. Drinkability is very high for a 9.4% beer due to the lack of cloyingly sweet malt and abrasive hops.
O: This is a DIPA that’s right up my alley. Tropical fruit, flowery malt and high drinkability. Doesn’t feel like it’s attacking my sensibilities. A wonderful beer.
