4.8/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: Cloudy orange-yellow color. Like a heavy cider. Thick and viscous. Barely able to muster a single-finger head. Tiny, fine lacing.
S: Hops from across the room. Powerful and dry with hints of malt. Smells like it'll be nicely balanced.
T: Nicely balanced for an IPA. The finish in the middle of the tongue leaves a wonderful dry, and slightly sweet, malt flavor. Truly divine mixture.
M: Decent, refreshing carbonation on the front and sides of the tongue. Amazing drying finish leaves you wanting for more. Nice, thick and chewy body to boot.
D: This stuff is good, nay great. I'm drinking an out of date bottle and it's still an amazing journey. Easy to drink, though it hits harder than the 7.7% ABV. I could drink this any time, any place.
Served: in an imperial pint glass from a bottle stamped with an "enjoy by 9/27/09" message.
