12oz bottle. Bottled 3/14/12. Served in a Southern Tier tulip snifter.
Pours clear dark amber with 2 fingers pale head. Spotty lacing.
Pungent dank hop aroma. Mangos, pine and a hint of booze.
Tastes nice. Citrus and pine are present with a mildly onion garlic dankness (which I happen to enjoy in a DIPA). The booze comes through in the long aftertaste.
Medium mouthfeel with mild carbination and sticky hop oil slickness.
A well done imperial IPA. I'm glad it's in 4 packs of 12oz bottles this year. This is worth a try for DIPA fans.
