12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint. No date or info.

A - Bright and clear golden yellow beer pours fourth with strong carbonation rushing upwards. A two-finger white head isn't retained all that fantastically but it leaves a curtain of thick lace in it's wake.

S - I'm greeted with a soft, crisp, and enticing hop bouquet rich with floral notes, a splash of lemon citrus, a pinch of resin and honey, and a subdued dry and bitter-smelling finish. Crystal malts back it up nicely. It's got a great aroma without being 'big'.

T - High alpha acid hops have a nice crisp flavor of floral and citrus notes with a resiny finish that transitions to honey-draped crystal malts. Great balance here. Just doesn't feel like a double though.

M - A nice grapefruit citrus bitterness scrubs the tongue clean with strong carbonation on the finish. A medium body with a crisp mouthfeel and lightly dry kick is nice. It's got the bitterness, just not teeth-meltingly so.

D - If there ever was a session DIPA, this would be it. It might be passable as a standard IPA though, but it's great either way you look at it. The smooth, crisp flavors really blend well giving it a nice and balanced finish. It's a great beer.
