Served on-tap at the Prohibition Pig on 12/27/13, served in a tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: A pale and hazy orange/gold, with thick creamy head and thick creamy lacing.

Smell: Disappointingly weak. But what I do get is a lot of floral citrus and pine. Apricot comes through prominently too.

Taste: Lightly vinous, bitter, with creamy malts backing up piney hops. Believe it or not, I even got a prominent bubblegum flavor toward the end. Probably from all that yeast that made the beer so hazy. This was really delicious, and the vinous character made it somewhat distinct from the other IPAs I tried on my Vermont trip.

Mouthfeel: Thick and creamy, with a moderate level of carbonation. The beer seemed to stay forever.

Overall: I should have written this when my memory of the beer was clearer, but I do remember this being delicious, even with the weak nose. Glad I got an opportunity to try it.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with a hazy body and a thin white head. Smell is highly citric. Grapefruit and mango seem to lead the way. Taste is grapefruit up front that turns to bready malt mid-palette. The finish is a little resinous with a medium bitterness. Fairly light bodied for a DIPA. Soft mouthfeel, almost creamy.

Great beer. Great drinkability.
