12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Bottled 12/21/2011. Received in a trade with Huadog, thanks!
Pours a straw-amber with maybe a finger of head. Head fades very quickly, leaves very light lacing. Almost no visible carbonation after that.
Smell is mostly pine with a little grapefruit.
Taste starts off at full pine. Sweetness starts to creep in, and before long there's a very full maltiness, almost candy-like underneath the hops. A previous reviewer mentioned a bubble gum-like taste, and I can totally see that. No detectable alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium, standard for a DIPA. Dry, and more carbonated than it looks.
Very easy to drink. Surprisingly so, at almost 8% abv. I can see why this has attained such a cult following, though I wouldn't say it blew my mind. Very enjoyable, though.
