A 32 oz growler given to me as a birthday gift from brewdude1982's recent trip to Asheville
A - clear orangish yellow with a huge, dense, foamy, pure-white head that has great retention
S - huge juicy citrus notes, ruby red grapefruit and orange
T - faint dark bread malt character, mild rind-like bitterness, huge citrus notes of grapefruit and maybe some pineapple, a mild sweetness towards the finish, and some warming alcohol in the finish, lingering bitterness
M - medium bodied, warming alcohol, well carbonated
This is a hugely hopped, intensely citrusy DIPA. Outside of some of my groups' homebrews, I'm not sure I've tasted anything this intensely citrusy. The malt is there but it doesn't have the backbone to stand up to the immense hop character. There is also a strong bitterness that comes along and tries to lend depth. Ultimately, this is a good DIPA. It has decent flavor and I could drink a few of these without getting bored. I would like to see a bit more balance and depth, but even as it stands, it is worth a try.
