Just put on @ the cwe iTap
The beer pours a rich looking coppery orange with a fluffy white head that laces. The nose is grapefruit rindy with a hint of sweetness and booze. It's served a bit cold for true aromatics, but really only hits the citrus notes with any emphasis. The taste is a slap in the face of sticky hops, ruination-eque, crazy sweetness, hint of floral green tea changing thing up, and a love you long time bitter alcohol burn in the finish. I'd say this has medium bodied sweetness, is well carbonated, generously hoppy, and finishes with a nearly palate napalm bitterness. I don't see this dipa differentiating itself from the 100s of other good dipas I've consumed, but think it's still enjoyable when you've acquired the "hop itch."
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled last May 13th 2013. On sale and I've wanted to try this so I took a chance.
Poured from the 22 oz. bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
a: Nearly clear dark gold with a frothy two inch head which receded to rocky surface foam and patterned lacing.
s: Moderate pine and orange.
t: Oily smoothness with heavy body, then the hops bite. Citrus aftertaste with some bitterness on the tongue. The nearly 10% ABV seems amazingly well covered, virtually no throat burn.
m: Very silky smooth, Heavier than it looks, substantial body, which is part of its charm.
o: A sexy, tasty DIPA, still strong on hop bite despite its age. Perfect DIPA for the Fall and winter months. I was afraid this would not be so good after the months on it, but it was great.
