How served: 750ml capped bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th anniversary tulip.

Notes: This beer gets its name from the book Dalva written by Jim Harrison.

This is a Bottle conditioned beer which is best consumed by August 2013.
Tasted on: Tuesday April 30, 2013

A: The beer poured a clear golden color with a 3 finger white head which left a mild lacing on the glass.

N: The nose was of citrus and floral hops along with a mild sweetness and hints of pepper, cloves and yeast.

T: The taste started off slightly sweet from the malts followed with a mild bitterness from the hops which contained mild notes of citrus, grapefruit and piney resin also in the background was a spicy/peppery taste. The beer finished dry.

M: This beer had a medium body with a medium level of carbonation and only a mild hint of the alcohol level.

O: Overall this was a very good and complex brew. Would I have considered it to be a double IPA it I did not know what I was drinking? I would say no, it tasted to me like a very hoppy farmhouse ale/saison. I also regret not drinking this brew fresh, after I purchased it in October 2012 at the brewery, even though the label said best by August 2013.
