look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle, date stamp appears to be 14072, but it's a bit smudged. Release No. 18, 2014. Sadly I have only had 2 previous encounters with this beer. I would guess 2008 and 2009. What was I thinking waiting 5 years?!
L - a frothy spattering of ivory head covers the top of the glass as it fades atop a brilliant amber colored ale
S - sweet, hoppy, tropical nose with mango, pineapple, caramel, bread
T - sweet yet bitter and pungent: caramel, honey, faint toffee and toasted grain, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and pine all meld together wonderfully
F - fuller body, a bit resinous and finishes semi dry with lingering bitterness; booze is warming and pleasant
O - world class DIPA. A must try.
