2011 batch, 1.5 pint bottle into New Belgium snifter

Appearance is a orange/copper with a thick almost soupy off-white head that has some massive clingage and stays around for over an hour! Smell is lots of oily hops, primarily of the grapefruit variety but also some pine. In the taste hop tastes emerge similar to the SN Pale Ale but much more intense. Lots of bitter grapefruit and a bit of resin. Malt is light tasting but fairly assertive. Mouthfeel is medium in body and carb and a bit thick, but not syrupy.

A very well balanced DIPA that is surprisingly understated allowing lots of hops but not in a way that challenges you to do anything but sip. Super hopheads may find this weak but this is perfect for me. An absolutely beautiful looking DIPA that I would have more than one of.
