5/5 rDev +11.1%
I believe I've tried every batch of PD to date. Without fail one of the best IPAs being brewed to day, and one of the most consistent. The hop bill is different every batch, so there's little sense in picking it apart in this review, though it's always hugely aromatic and leans toward the dank side of things, as you may have guessed. Lighter in body, dry, plenty bitter but not excessively. Incredibly clean fermentation. A masterful beer, I'm hard pressed to think of a better year-round IPA.

Got this from a friend who lives in Albuturkey. Apparently the hop bill changes on this one with each batch?
Pours a nice hazed golden amber. Decent head. Citrus and piney nose. Flavor is nice. Great character with minimal abrasive qualities. A nice smooth ride of citrus hop character. I think that's the defining feature of this one: smooth. Very easy to drink. I guess this is how IPAs are going to be now. At least, we can only hope.
This looks like a brewery to keep your eye on.

Bottle poured into a bell tulip. Bright orange-yellow color, slightly hazed, with a finger or so of frothy white head that eventually sank to a collar and held there, dotting the glass with lace. The aroma was mostly floral, lesser notes of citrus rind and pine needles. Taste was good, but not quite as inviting as the aroma. Floral and herbal notes, citrus zest bringing in a solid yet low-key bitterness, pine resin, with a small, crackery malt complex. Mouthfeel was on the lighter-side of medium, which was nice, and this was a pretty easy drinker. Not really "dank" as compared to several other IPAs out there. A pretty average IPA overall, with nothing really setting it apart from many other easily obtainable options. But it was still a good beer.

From 02/11/14 notes, Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross. 22 oz. bottle into my Bell's tulip.
a - Pours a somewhat clear bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks nice.
s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, pine hops, fruity malts, wheat , and light spice. Nice nose, lots of citrus and fresh hops.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, grains, bread, spice, pine hops, fruity malts, wheat, and some light grapefruit and tropical fruits. Tiniest bit of bitterness. Good taste though I found the nose hoppier.
m - Medium body and light to medium carbonation. Very light bitterness.
o - Overall I liked this one a lot, especially the nose. Very hoppy and lots of citrus and easy to drink. If I saw it around I'd buy it all the time.
