4.55/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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!
