The local shop finally tapped their keg after sitting on it for 2 weeks. So glad they did because it was delicious.
A - Pours a beautiful clear copper color with a great looking white 2 finger head. Good lacing!
S - Lots of citrus, and pine
T - The bitterness of the hops is really nice. Got lots of citrus up front followed by the malt.
M - The beer is really smooth. Carbonation was perfect. Medium bodied.
O - Very worth the wait. Super smooth drinkable DIPA. Hope to get a couple bottles when it shows up in our area.
Serving type: on-tap

4.39/5 rDev -2.7%

Poured from a bottle into a tulip shaped glass. Dated 1/10/14 so it's exactly two months old. I'm guessing most will say i need to have it fresher but this is the best i can do here in New Hampshire.
I thought it presented almost perfectly, creamy off-white 3/4 head, some lacing as i go. Hazy, dense copper color, very pretty. The smell is good but not what drives the beer, musty & funky with a hint of sweetness. The taste is bitter and hoppy, no real fruit presence. Not sure if it's the honey that slightly offsets the bitterness but it works non-the-less. Overall, this a bubbly, carbonated, hoppy happy beer. Their isn't even a slight hint that it's 10%, no boozy taste or smell. Cheers.
