Tried this beer again on tap at the Front Door in Boise- the first time I was overcome by the hops, but this time I was more preparred and in the mood. I am not necessarily a hop head, but this beer had good complex flavors on the front end before the hops slammed you on the back end.
A nice light clear amber color and very thick white head with heavy lacing. Served in a small tulip glass (10oz pour).
When you consider the 10.5% ABV, this is pretty impressive beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured bottle packed on 5/2/14 into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a clear amber color with a two finger white head. great lacing.
S-In your face aroma of dank hops, grapefruit, caramel, light pine.
T-Awesome taste of citrus hoppy flavors to start. Finishes quite dry with good citrus as well as a hint of earthiness and caramel.
Mouthfeel is a medium body, average carbonation, bitter dry finish that lasts, light alcoholic feeling, sticky.
O-Overall wow this was a great DIPA seems to be better than 2012 I had back then. Way to go SN
