I'll add my two cents to this seasonal classic. 2012 bottle dated 1/10/12. Poured into tulip glass.
A - Pours a medium orange color with two finger head. Lacing sticks heavily to the sides of the glass.
S - Tons of citrus, pine, grapefruit, orange, sweet sticky hops. Ecstasy for the nose!
T - Starts out with some sweetness from the honey then boom, the bitterness of the citrus hops come into play. Finish is dry and bitter but such a nice rounded smoothness from the honey. Nearly perfect balance of hops and malt thanks to the honey.
M - Medium body with sticky hop goodness coating the entire mouth.
O - What can I say that all the reviews haven't said before? This is simply an amazing DIPA that drinks so easily despite its 10% abv subtle punch. Dangerously drinkable. Enjoying this fresh and at nearly $20 a six pack its worth the price.
