4.45/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 1/13/13, poured into a tulip glass.

A- pours crystal clear golden-orange color with a two finger foamy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top, leaving textbook lace around the rim.

S- wow, hops punch in the face! Sharp and pungent citrus notes, oily resin, some floral notes, citrus pineapple and papaya and a very refreshing mint leave smell. Just a touch of yeasty malt on the end with a bit of dank. Quite complex.

T- the thing that's immediately stands out upon the first few sips is the complexity of the hops. I'm getting citrus, mango, papaya, grass, fresh mint and just a touch of pine. The alcohol is noticeable but not 10% noticeable, just enough to warm up the palate. With the complexity of the malts, it doesn't rip my tongue out. But rather leaves an intense hop linger that lasts long after the sip. Malt it noticeable but this is obviously a hop show.

M- medium body, moderate carbonation, just enough to give it a kick. Quite possibly the creamiest mouthfeel I've experienced from a DIPA, the finish is velvety, leaving just enough alcohol to let you know it's there.

O- After finishing half of the glass I'm still picking out little subtleties that pop out from the hop profile. This is the best DIPA that I've had, nearly perfect mouthfeel, hidden alcohol and a solid flavor profile. Worth seeking out.

This beer came to me a few months ago and I finished all six relatively soon after. It was a slightly sweet dipa with the honey noticeable in the front end of each sip. It was very strong at 10% and a little boozy but I really enjoyed it. I wish it was easier to get because I would buy it often.
