12oz bottle into Duvel tulip
A - pours medium orange with losse frothy head. dissipates with no real lacing.
S - heavy citrus hop aroma. grapefruit, sweetness and not a hint of alcohol burn.
T - tangy bitter citrus on the tongue too. as wonderful as i remember it being. loads of citrus up front finishing with a great stinging bitterness at the back.
M - creamy and full. finishes medium and reminds you it was there.
O - had this countless times but decided to review it finally. This fresh really is one of the best, most accessible DIPA out there. There is a reason they have been doing it for 10 years...its just DAMN good. I feel it's underrated because its NOT new. This is a great DIPA that should be tried by all.

I got a 22oz bottle of this from Woodman’s in Rockford, Il for $5.99 in early 2012. Pours a clear amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Scent is full of hops mices with some citrus. Mmmm holy hops Batman. The taste is loaded with smooth, crisp hops that gang-bang your taste buds. Texture is smooth and refreshing. Slight dry, chalky finish. Really lives up to its name!
