16oz can, canned on 10-16-12, poured into a Duvel Tulip.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper-red beer. Off-white head - a bit thin even on pouring with most of the foam at the edge. Lots of little strands of persistent lacing noted.
Smell: Pine and lemon/grapefruit citrus with a tiny bit of malt in the back.
Taste: Very balanced for a DIPA. A bit of hops up front (pine bitterness), then solid malt middle with some solid caramel middle and then lingering pine and grapefruit bitterness at the end. Not a hop bomb for a DIPA and that's okay.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, with some spicy carbonation underneath. Definitely sticky on the teeth like the can says.
Overall / Drinkability: Not the most amazing DIPA I've ever had, but probably one of the most balanced I've ever had. Very balanced and not a bitter hop bomb....and yet I think I wouldn't mind more hop flavor. Quite drinkable and good with food, but also good for drinking by itself. This is the 2nd of the 4 pack I'm having, the first was with dinner and the 2nd is by itself and I can see this beer complements both types of events.
Serving type: can
