Served in a Tulip glass at the Prohibition Pig on 12/27/13. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance: Hazy amber with a creamy white, head that doesn't stay around too long. Beautiful, persistent lacing.
Smell: Oh my god. Oh my god. Lots of citrusy, floral hops, and the bitter orange peel just accentuates all of this. This may be the best smelling DIPA I've ever had. I want to bathe in this.
Taste: Like the smell, absolutely amazing. Tons of citrus, with creamy, bready malts backing up notes of herbal pine and orange peel. The hops here are ridiculous. This is like Heady, but better. And bitter, too, particularly in the aftertaste. I just can't get over how fantastic this is.
Mouthfeel: Beautifully creamy, with a thick body for an IPA. Carb is well balanced, and moderate. It lingers in the mouth for quite a while.
Overall: Please can this beer, I want to drink this much more often than I can get to Waterbury. I never thought anyone would be able to outdo Heady Topper, but this beer definitely does so in my book. Every hop-head should get a taste of this.

Figured my first review should be a beer that absolutely blew me away. Totally unexpected taste from a brewer I should have expected it from.
A- Golden color served in a tulip glass. I'd give it one finger of foamy goodness. As good as it looked I had to move on.
S-I closed my eyes and was in an orange grove, blossoms from an April morning
T- Hops hit you hard but then an orange sweetness takes over, and hangs in there. The orange was so powerful you couldn't taste the alcohol, and I didn't taste any bitterness.
M-Definitely a full-bodied feel to it.
O-This beer was absolutely perfect. I'm new here, but I've drank enough beer to know that this was an outstanding beer. I had it right along side a Heady, and man I have to say this was slightly better. Please can this.
