A: Brilliant golden amber with a goopy white head.
S: Fresh floral hops, grapefruit, a little pine, some apple and pear flavor, and sweet caramel malt. Doesn't get much better than this.
T: Flavor is a huge, bitter pine and grapefruit assault on the tongue. A little apple and pear are evident midway through, followed by light caramel malt sweetness. Finish is long, bitter and slightly astringent.
M: Medium body with full carbonation and a crisp dry finish. On the lighter/crisper side for a DIPA.
I've enjoyed the flavor of this beer a little more in years past. Seems a little bit more astringent and alcoholic this year, but maybe it's more a result of my palate adjusting to all the fruity Citra IPAs/DIPAs out there these days. Still an outstanding beer with an unbelievable aroma.
