This is a damn fine IIPA. Bottled Feb 2007 Batch 5 from the label.
A beautiful beer. A ruby hued deep amber body with a fine yet vigorous level of carbonation which produced a 4 finger rocky offwhite head on a fairly gentle pour. Sticky lacings clumped and defied gravity, and the head eventually settled to finger's worth, and persisted until the glass was gone.
A big pineapple blast, with a touch of papaya. Strong notes of ruby red grapefruit and pine resin also present. Malty notes of toasted bread and a touch of caramel are perceptable underneath the wall of hops.
Damn tasty. Pineapple and grapefruit take the front, a touch of papaya, and the bitter hops finish in resiny pine. The big, tasty and bitter hops dominate the solid malt backbone of toasted bread with a hint of caramel sweetness.
Hop bitterness strips the tongue, roof of the mouth and back to the throat. The stripping is slightly mellowed by alcohol warmth and a creamy mouthfeel. A big bold beer, medium to full bodied, that should appeal to anyone looking for a hop blast.
Pretty drinkable for a big and bold brew. Would fit in nicely into any hop head's session. I enjoyed this bomber all by myself and it just went down too easily, leaving me wishing for more. Will be buying this again soon.
