I purchased the last 3 x 22oz bombers from my local shop today. One is being offered in a trade, the other one was intended for sample tonight, and the third to be kept or traded depending on if I liked the initial sampling. This one is a winner and I will be keeping the third bottle after trading the second.
Appearance -orange to amber brew with single finger head of white foam. it shows a fair amount of head retention and lacing.
Smell - Lots of pineapple like citrus coupled with a back bone of subdued bitterness. Some bready and sweet notes as well. I'm not getting any spicyness or pepperyness from this DIPA which is a bonus for me.
Taste - The initial taste experience is all hoppy bitter goodness that then blends with the pineapple and grapefruit qualities. A dash of pepper comes through for a second and then yields to a bread like malt finish. Grapefruit dominates the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Creamy mouthfeel from a moderate amount of carbonation coupled with a medium body.
Drinkability - Wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed this DIPA.... A new found gem.
Side Note: This beers taste declines sharply as it gets older. If your sample isn't fresh you aren't getting this one in its best light. I've been sadly disappointed with older samples and thoroughly impressed by fresh ones.
