12oz bottle poured into CCB snifter. Bottled 12/29/11
A- Pours a hazy dark orange gold, not much head, fairly low carbonation.
S- Honey, hops, citrus fruits, a little bit of grapefruit, lemon, etc..
T- Sweet honey, citrus hops, a little bit of pine, finishes a little bit bitter.
M- Medium bodied, well balanced between hops and honey, abv very well hidden, finishes smooth.
O- This was a very good DIPA that's a little bit different then the Northeast IPAs I'm used to due to the addition of the honey. The DIPA has a nice sweet taste that is well balanced between the hops and the honey. It's very hard to tell that this beer is 10%, it is hidden very well. I still prefer beers like Heady Topper, HF IPAs, etc. a little bit better, but this DIPA was great non-the-less. The bottles I had were a bit past there prime so the hops faded a little bit, but they were still very good.
