Happy IPA day everyone! Picked up this bomber in Chicago a few weeks back.
A: hazy orange-gold with multiple fingers of frothy, white head. Good retention, strong lace. Head instantly reappears with a swirl of the glass a half hour after the initial pour. IPAs aren't supposed to look this good!
S: sweet malts, earthy hops, juicy grapefruit. Strong, aromatic, and fantastic.
T: starts off sweet with a tangy grapefruit tartness slowly moving forward. Strongly hopped, but not overly bitter. Finishes mildly sweet with an interesting infusion of lactose and carefully balanced hoppy bitterness that lingers as it goes down. Mild alcoholic warmth reminds you this is a DIPA.
M: on the lighter side of full-bodied. Still smooth and somewhat creamy, but a bigger body would definitely improve upon the greatness that is Apocalypse Cow.
D: very high for me (I don't particularly like IPAs). This beer is absolutely delicious and has me craving more. It's a solid step above DFH 90, but not quite on the same level as Pliny.
That said, the malt/hop mixture here is superb. I'd happily throw this into my regular rotation if it were available in NY.
