4.18/5 rDev -0.9%
poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Bottled date of 5/25/13, so 3 months old.
Poured a nice yellow with some orange hints, very faint haze. White foamy head of about 1/2 inch retained for a while before becoming a collar with a faint cover. Lacing was light but stuck. This beer looks almost harmless when sitting there. "Come on, drink me"
Nice hops smell, with just a hint of the alcohol behind it.
Taste is just great, a medium hop assault on the roof of the mouth and sides of the tongue.
The finish is clean, with a slow and not overpowering alcohol burn taking over from the hops bitterness. Mouth is somewhere betweeen light and medium, a bit surprising for such a high alcohol DIPA. About 2/3rds of the way through the beer, the burn became more prevulent than the biting hops. Very soothing and satisfying.
Overall, a very good DIPA from a very good brewer.
