Date on the bottle said the January 2nd 2013.
A - Poured out a nice frothy 2 finger off white yellowish head that leaves great lacing. It is hazy golden color that is clear but looks as though there is something extra in it.
S - This one really lets off some hop aroma. It is really dank and pungent with a "citrusy" orange smell. A wonderfully sweet cascade of hops from this makes my mouth water. After drinking this beautiful smell fades away so if you like the scent smell it before you drink it.
T - Again like the nose, a pungent dank citrusy (orange, lemon) hops which leads into a bitter bite on the back end. This one is relatively sweet and honey-ish but not cloying with minute amounts of alcohol on the aftertaste. So bitter it has an astringency to it on the finish.
M - Medium bodied with enough carbonation to keep the flavors going. My tongue can feel the bitter bite of this brew in which it feels like it was scrubbed clean by the hop oils. Slightly sticky. Interesting what it does to the mouth for sure.
O - This brew is what ended up getting me into drinking true craft beer. I may be bias toward it but it is non the less one of my favorite Double IPA's even though it is ridiculously priced. I look forward to drinking this every year and so should you, cheers!
