look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Just shy of two weeks old. Tulip.

A - 4.5 - Crystal clear orange gold with a nice bright white textured head that dissipates slowly.

S - 4.5 - Smells heavenly. Fresh hops, citrus, cotton candy.

T - 4.25 -Really nicely balanced. There is a malty citrusy sweetness offset by a bitterness that's an even match for it at first but which takes over in the immediate aftertaste and lingers. I'm so glad to have caught this so fresh. What a difference it makes.

M - 4.5 - Short of medium bodied. Sticky on the tongue after swallowing. I'm left with the nicest warm, mature dryness in the aftertaste and exhale. There is the beginning of hop abrasion, which is leaving my lips and tongue slightly tingling but not raw. That's nice.

O - 4.25 - That has to be one of the better DIPAs I've had and just a winner all around. Whether it's $18-a-sixpack good is another question. I'm glad I tried it and like it a lot but think I'll stick to one sixpack per release. When you compare the per-bottle cost to what you'd pay in a bar, it's really not pricey at all. Just pricey for bottled. Thumbs up.
