Huge thanks to russwbeck for bringing this back from the Troegs brewery, fresh fresh fresh with a bottle date of 1/18/11.
22oz bomber poured into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.
A - Pours a vibrant reddish orange hue, crystal clear with countless streams of carbonation eager to replenish the head as it disappears. The head itself is a light khaki color, coming in strong at 2.5-fingers, but with moderately low retention. Lacing is sporadic and not very generous.
S - Smell is fresh, fresh hops, filled with wonderful pine and floral scents. There's some slight citrus here, but this beer is more focused on an airy, pine sap, flower type of aroma. That's what I prefer, so this nose is just heaven to me.
T - For how chock full of hops this beer is, it covers its bitterness pretty well. The beginning is a tad sweet before being overtaken by some slight grapefruit, wet pine, before ending with a pleasantly bitter finish. Simple yet eloquent.
M - Mouthfeel is light bodied moderate carbonation. Doesn't coat much or destroy the palate, but I could feel it linger and fight to stick to the enamel on my teeth. Pretty smooth as well.
D - Drinkability is high. So easy to drink and as soon as I put it down I'm looking to grab it again. Well worth the wait and a candidate for a case easily.
