22oz bottle - Bottled September 7th, 2010 - Poured into an imperial pint glass...
Dark for an IPA, a very murky golden/brown color with a couple floaties dancing around. Three fingers of fluffy, meringue-like white head forms and leaves a lot of lacing behind...
Nice strong aroma on this one. Tropical and fruity. Juicy, startburst scented hops dominate. A bit of an earthy and slightly piny scent comes forward after a bit too. Good amount of malt cuts into the hops a bit, but this one is pretty hop-centric...
Taste falls a little short given the nice aromas of this one. Bitter and dry, all of the tropical hop aromas I smelled seemed to have disappeared in the taste. More piny, earthy and dry than expected. Sweet and heavy malt finish...
Medium bodied with good carbonation. A bit resinous, borderline heavy. Finishes bitter, dry and astringent...
Been wanting to try this one for a while, pretty good IPA, aroma was fantastic, but that also increased my expectations for the taste which I felt was a little thin, lacking some citrus/sweetness upfront, bitter hops needed a little twist...
