Purchased the day it was bottled, 10-5-12. Consumed 5 days later.
Big pine on the nose, with a solid backbone of citrus following. As it warms up a bit the citrus takes over. Malt sweetness is pretty evident.
Bitterness is really the overwhelming impression you get from the taste- especially as it warms. And it lingers. Citrusy. Caramel sugars were apparent earlier as it was colder, but warmed up a bit it is just super bitter. Still, surprisingly drinkable for a beer that is 11.3%.
Can a beer be too fresh and too hoppy? If there ever was a candidate for that title, this may be it. But it is good. The aroma is divine, and produced with with just centennial and chinook. Weirdly the chinook was particularly evident when cold, but the centennial became more present as it warmed. An awesome beer, the only thing that could make exceptional would be a bit lower of a price point. Still worth a shot though.
Note: listed as year round as it is included in the year round portion of their website.

Excellent doubleIPA. Big citrus, floral characters from the Centennial and Chinook hops.
I get a big alcohol feel, and the biscuit taste that many talked about does come through. Overall a big IPA. Just the way it should be. Very complex in the flavors associated with this Double IPA.
