reviewed from notes, 12 oz btl poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint Glass, lot #10126
A: clear golden yellow, pours a thick 2 finger head that lasts and leaves a lot of lacing down the side of the glass
S: hops, pine, sweet honey and a hint of sweet malt
T: crisp bitter hops, followed by smooth sweetness of honey and malt, not very complex but well blended flavors
MF: medium bodied, medium carbonation, very smooth
O: The hops definitely stand out but it was not the 'punch in the mouth' that I expected, the hoppy bitterness is contrasted nicely by the sweet smoothness of the honey and malt, actually a little too sweet for a DIPA. This is a good beer but I don't think it lives up to all the hype. I really don't think the name accurately characterizes the beer.
