3.73/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 277th day of 2011.

A: Bronze hue, huge tan head. Recedes into a thin cap of foam after a minute or so.

S: Pine, peaches, lavender. Almost like potpourri.

T: Pine, floral hops dominate. Lite citrus and herbal hops linger on the aftertaste. Not getting much malt flavor, a real hop bomb.

M: Slightly medicinal with some honey cough drop action going on.

O: Not the best Avery has done, but worth at least a try.

From a bomber into a Duvel tulip.

A: An off-white, thin head, a fair amount of carbonation is noticeable. It's body has a darker appearance than most IPA/DIPA's I see. Not real translucent compared with most. An off amber color.

S: Malt, Bread, Alcohol, and pine smelling hops. I do not get citrus, or that sort of variety off of the nose.

T: Malt, Bread, Alcohol, and pine, but the resinous aspect comes out in the hops. It is certainly sweet as well.

M: Thin, light carbonation, dry.

O: I wish I knew the bottling date on this, as it was a gift. Since Avery does not bottle date then it is fair game in my opinion. I would rate it better than most DIPA's out there. It is surely more malt forward than I am used to, however, that never deters me. I do not need my DIPA's to leave my tastebuds, or tongue bruised. I enjoyed the sweetness of this and found it relatively well balanced.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip, didn't find a date on the bottle, but found the case at the store, date of Oct 2011. This pours an orangish color with a large white head which leaves a lacing. The smells are loads of hops, mostly pine, a little caramel. The feel is medium, mouth coating hop resin. The taste is great, lots of malts and full of hop bitterness, great stuff.
