look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured from a 16oz can into a Town Hall Barrel Aged Week tulip. Last beer of the night 2/24/11.
Pours a pretty golden amber with a good head and decent lacing after a minute or so.
Smell is intoxicating. Tons of pine, malt, and citrus notes. Great mix for a DIPA
Taste is awesome as well. Hops and pine tones over whelm the awesome malt backbone but it feels strangely right to a hophead like me to enjoy the hops over the very sweet maltiness of this beer.
Mouthfeel is good. It coats you mouth with good hop resins and is moderate in the mouth weight.
Drinkability is high on this one for me. I wish this was one of Surly's year around. I love this beer.
Serving type: can
