22oz bottle. Drink 09/09/13 dating.

A: Semi-translucent burnished orange with a steady white head. Plenty of bubbles rising through this one.

N: Pineapple, tangerine in syrup, some earth and pine. None of these elements is in heavy supply, unfortunately. Hops are more floral and herbaceous - there's some lavendar here and some black peppercorn.

T: Sharply bitter with a biscuity non-sweet malt to prop it up. Probably one of the more bitter DIPAs out there.

M: Very resinous and very, very dry. Lots of alcohol reaching throughout this one.

O: Definitely a beer for people who are searching for the biggest and the most bitter. It's a well done beer, but it's not really for me.

Appearance: A very light golden with about a finger of a head.

Aroma: Piney hops up front followed by some fruity notes that I couldn't put my finger on what fruit it was.

Taste: Hoppy up front. This beer drinks somewhat bitter and does not have a lot of smooth citrus qualities to it. The aftertaste tasted a bit nutty to me, almost like a nut brown ale would.

Overall, this is a standard IPA that would be great for beginner drinkers.
