Bottle dated 072812 into Duvel tulip

A - clear deep orange with nice fluffy head. Head dissipates fairly quickly leaving minimal lacing.

S - west coast hops dominate. Quite a hoppy nose as expected. Not as abundant nose as I was looking for but still solid for an IPA.

T - hops don't really announce themselves on the palate until the back end. There is a peppery quality to the finish. Smooth overall but honestly lacking abit of body. One dimensional hop profile but what it does it does well.

M - spot on for the style. Smooth and creamy with a nice bite at the end. It's a RR so this shouldn't be much of a surprise.

O - no, this isn't PtE but I didn't expect it to be. This is a quality IPA from a truly fantastic brewery. The aroma could be slightly more pronounced and the flavor profile a tad more robust. Otherwise extremely good. I wouldn't pay a premium for this but I would love to have it on draft anyday and would never turn it down.
