22oz bottle dated 12/08/14 and served in chalice. Immediate aroma, big and green. A field of fresh hops. Very floral and fresh (and if the bottling really was just two week ago, it ought to be) . Beer itself is brassy gold in color, crystal clear, with a moderate white head. Flavor is straight ahead IPA, and not nearly as bitter on the tongue as it is aromatic. Flavors are both piny and grapefruity, with a respectable malt backbone. These are strong flavors, but drinkable ones, and the alcohol content, at 9.5%, doesn't come through at all. The finish is not totally dry; I completely agree with comments that this beer is not as attenuated as it could be, though I suspect that if it were much drier the bitterness would be overwhelming.

Overall, this is a first rate DIPA, as I've come to expect from Firestone Walker.

Poured from 220z bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: rich golden hue with a crystal-clear body and a light effervescence. Head is a thick finger of creamy ivory foam. I quite like it.

Smell: quite sweet and malty with a dank, herbal and earthy hop character. Pungent and enticing.

Taste: sweet and caramelly with a big malty element. Hops are like the aroma, earthy and a bit herbal. Bitterness is high enough to compete with the sweetness. Quite good indeed.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and a big creaminess that IPAs often fail to accomplish. Very good indeed!

Overall: this is a damn fine IIPA, but it doesn't completely blow me away. Still, I could see drinking this quite regularly.
