Poured from 500mL bottle into Hess Willi Becher glass. Bottled on 05/16/12. Purchased for $6.99 from Holiday Wine Cellar.
A - hazy, light golden yellow. One inch head that dissipates after a few minutes with a moderate pour.
S - Pine and mango with hints of pineapple.
T - first taste is lightly sweet that then reveals its hop-awesomeness. Bitter, but not over the top. Just enough malt backbone to let you know it's there. Also finishes sweet with a hint of caramel and bitterness.
M - a little thin for the style. Doesn't coat my tongue or mouth as much as I hoped or remember.
O - A very good DIPA. A lot of competition in this style nowadays. Alpine and Kern River are worth competitors that are sort of local to SoCal but are arguably harder to find. Still one of the paragons that most DIPAs will aspire to be.
