12 oz. 2013 bottle into a pint glass
A: Excellent thick head that remains for quite a while. A very nice dark amber that is slightly cloudy.
S: This smells like a slightly alcoholic IPA/DIPA. It is very much in the vein as a toned down 120. Quite citrusy and piney. Really does smell like a great IPA.
T: Well, it even tastes like a very piney IPA. God this is good. So, glad I decided to drink this tonight. It made up for the WWS and 120. The aftertaste is very resinous too.
M: It is quite smooth with coarse bubbles throughout. Very nice.
O: This seems like what 120 should be. What is up with the beers that I tried tonight? The WWS is the only one that seems to have been labeled right. Bigfoot and 120 should switch beer types. I really wonder what this would be like with some age on it when the hops die down. You can tell that there is another beer in there somewhere. I love this IPA, but it seems to turn into a BW with age.
