Seventh Batch - 05.17.13 served in a tulip glass
Light golden orange colored beer. Nice head. Decent retention. Great lacing
Fantastic aroma! Tropical fruit and citrus hops. Pungent and resiny Very strong and pronounced hop aroma. Some sweet malt, too. This is how a double IPA is supposed to smell like!
Great flavor. So much hop character! A nice balance of hop flavor, malt flavor and bitterness. Again, tropical fruit and citrus hops. A little spicy. Really nice flavor.
Medium bodied. Carbonation and bitterness is pretty harsh on the tongue. Everlasting dry, bitter finish.
I've recently realized the importance of drinking hoppy beers when they're fresh. This is a fantastic beer. I like the idea of having an "Enjoy By" date so prominent. For a hoppy beer, anyway. Hopefully I can snag a bottle or two from the next batch.

I had a batch with the sell by date of 7/4/14, and consumed on June 22. Growler from keg at local beer-specific retailer. Good dense gold color, a little hazy, but normal for a DIPA. Good healthy one finger head which left slowly. Aroma is almost pure hops, with a backing of malty sweetness. A bit grassy in its hoppiness, along with pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Taste is wonderful, full in your face hoppy bitter resinousness, backed by enough sweet malt to make it really drinkable. Again, a bit of green freshness in the hops, I'd compare it most to nopalitos or green agave, which accents the pine and grapefruit excellently. Finishes dry, hoppy, and leaving you wanting more. Great beer. My first in this series, but definitely not my last.
