Big Thanks to arvjunk for this
reviewed from notes taken on dec 2010
poured into tulip
Color: Almost orange, Some gold highlights come through when held to the light. A nice 2 finger white head form and it leaves behind some solid lacing.
Nose: Big fruit! Melon,peach,apricot,and mellow pineapple. Also you get the big hop profile of this beer.... quite piney, but also some sweetness rises from this brew.
Palate: Sticky and a bit boozy! The hops explode on the tongue, but then are washed away by the the gentle sweetness of this brew. The fruit also shines here as the melon and peach textures take over one the hoppy body is washed away. The carbonation is solid and the abv is masked well enough to make this DIPA quite drinkable.
Finish: Long and a bit bitter. Probably the weakest portion of the beer for me. Not as complex as I would like it to be, but still a very solid DIPA.
