Poured from a bottle into a schooner. No obvious best before date on the bottle.
A - amber with a moderate head that revolves after a few minutes with a fair amount of lacing. Lots of obvious carbonation on the sides of the glass.
S - very heavy pine and juniper and not much else. It's solid!
T - as expected it's got a powerful bitterness that leads primarily with pine, but has a hint of citrus. The initial attack resolves, leaving and enduring seductive hint of bitterness that you just want to keep feeding.
M - moderate carbonation balances out a buttery essence that coats your mouth.
D - even with the supreme IBUs and fairly high alcohol content this is goes down relatively easy.
This is probably my favorite IPA (plus Stone IPA and DFH 90) and is a truly superb beer. I can get it on tap fairly frequently, making it a true joy!
