12oz bottle into a tulip. 2011 "notch".

A- Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of off-white head. Tight bubbles leave sticky lacing. Nice looking IPA.

S- Big juicy tropical fruits mixed in with some bitter piney resins. Sweet malty graininess comes through on the end. Almost smells like a DIPA.

T- Big resins from the nose hit first, but are quickly followed up with a juicy sweetness. Bitter piney notes round out the finish with the grain/bread from the nose. Again, this brew tastes bigger than a normal IPA.

M- Medium-light bodied with aggressive carbonation helps to dry out the finish.

O- One of the better single IPA's I've had. I'd love to do a side by side with Zombie Dust.

Steady solid dark gold pour. 1/2 finger of medium cream head. Not much retention, but very nice lace rings.

Big pine nose with floral esters behind. Really well balanced.

Lots of pine right up front. Lots of hop oil. Picking up more floral tones later in the glass. Medium dry finish.

Creamy body with oil and resin from the hops.

Nice go-to IPA. Would love to keep this in the fridge if they bring it to NC.

A-Pour is a crystal clear amber with a huge frothy off white head and massive retention and lacing.

S-Amarillo hops in abundance, grapefruit and pine with a very solid malt backbone.

T-Delicious hoppy grapefruit flavors with a very solid malt backbone. Excellent balance and flavor.

M-Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, moderate dryness.

O-Delicious. A very nice IPA.
