Bottle dated 7/10/12. This is still less than 30 days old.
Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours clear golden amber with a big white head and plenty of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates at a moderate pace, leaving some lacing behind on the glass. A small cap of head is left behind atop the beer. I pick up aromas of citrus hops with that typical West Coast smell of orange and grapefruit. There is some sweet malt in the background. I can pick up some of the pine aroma as well. The citrus hops are more forward here, followed by some piney bitterness. The grapefruit and orange flavors are juicy. The sweet malts provide a nice backbone. There is a piney aftertaste, leaving some lingering bitterness in the mouth. Even at 9.4% ABV, the alcohol is not very noticeable. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry. This is an excellent DIPA.
