best by 5/2/13
A: Crystal clear dark gold color with a slightly off-white head that leaves a surprising amount of lace.
S: Tropical fruits with an underlying malt sweetness
T: A distinct malt sweetness combined with a mix of tropical fruits and a little bit of pine, as it warms I get a hint of orange or tangerine. There is a distinct hops sharpness at the end, but it is well mixed with the malts. A honey-like flavor that I assume is from the honey malt mentioned on the label.
M: Very crisp, slightly round and creamy with the hops leaving a residual dryness on the tongue.
O: Holy crap this is a great beer. This may rival Hopslam for the DIPA crown! An excellent combination of hops and malt, so much more than "hoppy" like the average DIPA. I just looked at the GLBC website and it appears this beer will be back next year.
