After a few fresh bottles, I was finally able to try this on-tap on 1/21/11 from a freshly tapped keg.
A- A nice golden amber color with a white head.
S- This beer smells amazing. Lots of citrus with some mild honey tones.
T- Again, lots of citrus. The hops aren't as strong as expected, but instead are balanced out by the honey. I know others think it might be too sweet, but to me, the combination makes this an incredible DIPA. The alcohol is hidden very well, and I would never have expected this was 10%.
M- A medium body that compliments the beer quite well. There is some creaminess in there that I think comes from the honey. Overall it feels great.
O- This is now my favorite DIPA. I am not a massive fan of the style, but I think the balance with the honey completes this beer for me. Overall one of my favorite beers, and definitely one of Bell's best efforts.
Serving type: on-tap
