Imbibed on tap at The Bistro's Double IPA Festival on 2/11/12.

Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a decent amount of head with great retention and lacing. Aroma starts and ends with hops. Oily, piney, earthy, woodsy. Very strong. Taste is super hoppy from the get go. Similar to aroma: oily, piney. I don't really get much malt from this, but then again the malt doesn't get in the way either. It does its job in supporting the flavor and mouthfeel of the beer. Maybe a good DIPA's malt should be looked at as good service in a restaurant: it was great if you don't notice it. Mouthfeel is balanced with a dry aftertaste.

This is one I've heard about and looked forward to. Another great beer with hype lives up to its reputation. I wrote several notes at the DIPA Fest and some of them were getting silly. My review ends with "Want in bottle." I think that speaks for itself. Now to make a trek to Kern County for some of this deliciousness.

Serving type: on-tap
