4.53/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
The beer I poured was bottled Mar 2011 and was noted as batch no 13.
Poured into a pint glass. The color is a dark amber, really quite stunning with a lot of carbonation. I got a two finger, off white, and rocky head. This is a beautiful beer.
Smells sweet, like pineapple. I picked this aroma up as soon as the beer hit the glass.
I first taste the malty sweetness, then some orange citrus. Finishes with a little hoppy bitterness. At 10.54% I can also taste the alcohol on this one. This is a very tasty yet very strong bold beer.
Medium bodied, fairly boozy yet in a pleasant complimentary way. This leaves a malty sweet after taste but it's not over powering and quite enjoyable.
As soon as I poured this I got hit with the sweet smell of pineapple and was also very pleased with how this beer looked. I will buy more of this, just so long as I can find it.

4.18/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Hazy light brown, one-finger head
S: Lots of malt, caramel, toffee followed by grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit underneath. Complex and very pleasant to smell
T: Matches the nose but the hops are more prevalent
M: Full bodied; malty, hoppy, not hot but I can tell the EtOH is there
O: Not the best DIPA I've had but quite tasty and a classic example of the style. I've had this both bottled and on tap and it's far better on tap
Serving type: growler
