This was bottled on 03/01/14. This beer might have lost some hops flavours.
A - Nice golden colour with a frothy, thick head that last's awhile. Some nice lacing.
S - The smell of fruit hits me before my nose is anywhere near the glass. Once I sniff I smell mango, a touch of grapefruit, pine, and a bit of resin. Nose is not as strong as initially suggested.
T - Not as much fruit as I got on the nose. More of the resin and bitterness. Some sweet malt. Well balanced, but a little more malt then I would prefer in a DIPA. Alcohol is not very detectable. I suspect that much of the hops flavours have worn off due to the age of the bottle.
M - Thin and a bit watery. Not a lot of carbonation.
O - Not bad. Not sure I would buy this again though. A bit disappointing.
