This is a wonderful beer-- I think that it's almost beyond the IPA style.
In someways w/o knowing that it's an IPA -- I wanted to call it a Bock but
then again it is an IPA.

It produced a flowery and fruity nose--

First sip added to the notion of the flower-shop nose.

Body galore!

Maybe there's no malt in the brew-- but I swear there's a sweetness- that loaf of bread.
The hops are there too in abundance.

Even with the 9.4% ABV I can put down the four pack in a sitting while in total beer ecstacy

Pours a light gold. Looks almost like a lager. Scent is intensely piney. One of the most piney IPAs I've had. Taste follows scent but there's a creamy, slightly (very slightly) sweet quality that you don't get from the nose. This is in many ways a classic middle-of-the-road DIPA.

I'm a bit schizo about this beer. I buy it every year and have the same response: one night I think it's good but not great, then the next night it seems truly outstanding. Don't know why this happens. But it is never bad; sometimes it's great.
