12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 2/1/11 - oops, just found this in the fridge. If it sucks i will re-review it.
A - Pours a slightly hazy orange with a nice foamy white color head. The beer is fairly high in alcohol so the head didn't build very high or fast and fell rather quickly eventually settling to the edges of the glass. No lacing to speak of.
S - Fairly sweet smelling. Very sweet tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples dominate the aroma profile. A healthy malt presence is paired with a healthy dose of hops.
T - Oh, thats nice. The taste follows the nose very closely. Its a pretty sweet DIPA which opens up with pineapple and mango juices, some bready, biscuity malts and finishes with a nice non-descript hop bitterness. This is very delicious.
M - Medium body with a slightly low carbonation level, totally normal for the style.
O - I was disappointed that i drank this nearly 10 months after it was bottled, but to be honest with you this drank amazing. Very drinkable and for a 9.4% abv, i could easily drink a couple without realizing what i was doing. This is dangerously good.
