Bottle. Best buy date of 09/07/2011 on the side. Poured into Central Waters globe:
A - Pours a nice golden color with lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom and sides. A soapy, fizzy head forms about 1/2 inch thick that dies into thin foam rind around the edges with bubbles and murky clouds in the middle. Lacing isn't too bad.
S - Notes of pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Hints of pine and a little bit of carmalized, bready malts. Little bit of lemon zest and orange, but only slightly.
T - Pretty straight forward on the citrus notes: lemon, lime, pineapple, grapefruit and a little bit of green grape skins. The finish is a bit bitter with pine and malts.
M - A little syrupy, but not thick at all. The carbonation is good and crisp, with a little bit of a drying effect toward the finish.
O - Not too bad. Pretty crisp and light. Not too over the top with flavors and smells but at least its not in a bad way. This is a nice seasonal to drink but wouldn't be my first choice in a DIPA. Worth a try though for people who like DIPAs.
