12/14/11 canning poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a hazy amber/copper color, with a dense creamy white head. Very sticky lacing.
S: HUGE citrus burst in the nose. A perfect blend of pineapple, grapefruit, and piney hop scents before I'm even done pouring the can. This is what a DIPA should smell like.
T: Taste absolutely backs up the aroma. Loads of sweet citrusy flavors backed up with a dry, piney finish. Nice bitterness from the hops to counteract the sweetness.
M: Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is subtle, making this brew extremely smooth.
O: Absolutely a world class DIPA. This year's batch seems even better than past incarnations. So good, I think I'll just have to drink 1 more
Serving type: can
