12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe glass

Wow this beer rocks harder than Led Zeppein. It pours up a hazy gold with a nice one finger head, medium retention and lots of lacing. The nose is a powerful pleasing citrus, pine, floral, and malt. Taste is heavenly. It starts out sweet and malty with some notes of apple and of source the grapefruit. It gives way to a wonderful hop bitterness that seems to be just about right. Mouthfeel is very full and satisfying. This is one of the better DIPAs that I've had. I think only Pliny stands above it.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a large glass, served at fridge temp.

Hazy Lemon yellow with linen colored head. Magnificent rings of lacing.

aroma of pine, citrus, yeast?

mouthfeel is slippery and smooth.

taste: light coating of malt followed by a cavalcade of hops that tumble by in such a profusion that they are hard to immediately identifiable but include citrus, pine and eucalyptus followed by a strong puckering bitterness.

notes; this is a big beer with a very complex hop bill. So many IPAs feature citrus and pine. This one includes those but in a swirling stew that my beer knowledge is inadequate to describe.
