Poured into a Duvel tulip. Sampled a while back. Bottled 1/7.

A: Hazy gold with some yeast residue. Thin white halo with a little bit of lacing.

S: Pine, musty earth. Pretty muted sadly.

T: Hops have faded I think. Malt is taking over, making it a bit messy. Some sweetness, but it seems less hop forward than last year's.

M: Tingly carbonation that doesn't linger too long.

O: I loved it last year, but just liked it this year. Would have loved a fresher bottle or on tap, but I worked with what I had.

This beer pours a hazy, semi-transparent golden with an average white head. Strongly hoppy aroma has a hint of evergreen. Powerful hoppy flavor has firm tones of evergreen and grapefruit, quite sour. Lively, fizzy texture has firm body and is quite pleasing.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a nice white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of tropical fruit, some caty-ness, and pine. A nice mix of hop character and a big aroma.

Up front bitter fruit, stone fruit that goes into more of the same in the middle with a citric/orange character that ends with notes of pine and grapefruit and lingering bitterness. Has lighter fruit notes and a heavy/pine bitterness with just enough malt to balance.

Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation work well enough. It is noticeably warm and bitter...making it seem not as refined as some of the better DIPAs.

A good DIPA that hits a lot of the great hop flavors, minus citra overload, but it is heavy and highly drinkable. Not that that is a bad thing, but it is different from a lot of more quaffable DIPAs. I like it and would get it again.
