22oz acquired in trade. Been waiting for this one! 2012 release.
A - Extremely attractive pour. Typical for the style, but this one has a fantastic pure white head that sticks around for a while. Lacing is absolutely outstanding. Slightly hazy yellow/orange hue.
S - Awesome fruit notes. Big pineapple, grapefruit, mango and orange. All hops in the aroma.
T - I wish more accessible DIPA's tasted like this! Huge fruity hop notes. This beer needs to warm some to get the full bouquet of flavors. Big sweet pineapple and citrus. Mango all over the place. Towards the end the bread malts come through, but the bottle is correct, this beer is all about the hops. Total fruit-hop bomb, and I LOVE it.
M - Outstanding job done in this department. Perfectly carbonated and has the consistency of a carbonated cask brew, if that makes any sense. Creamy, smooth and absolutely awesome.
O - Extremely glad that I was able to source this bottle finally. For comparison, think of a day old batch of a less sweet Founders Double Trouble & Lagunitas Sucks. Fantastic beer. Shame I probably won't ever have it again.
