Bottle from 6-pack packaged on January 12, 2009 poured into pint glass.
Saffron-colored body with thick head of white foam, settles to a fingerbreadth throughout tasting.
Pleasing grass, earth, grapefruit combination.
To quote from the bottle: " A biting, bitter, tongue bruiser of an ale", but in actuality a rather smooth, hop-filled warmth descends upon the buds with a bit of after-swallow tingle.
Smooth, no oily resin here.
Clean, hop-filled ale goes down easy. The 10% ABV well cloaked. Recent tasting of Victory Hop Wallop and DFH 90 minute completes the triumvirate with Bell's DIPA the clear favorite. If there is a better DIPA I haven't had the pleasure. Highly recommended.
