4.95/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5
Appearance: A nice clear amber-ish gold, with a good white head that leave nice lacing
Smell: Fragrant pine and floral hops, with some light malts
Taste: Piney, floral, and the right amount of bitterness. At only 15 days old, I can taste why this is best fresh. You also get some biscuit and fruit in there. Very complex. Semi-dry finish. No hints at the 8% abv. It would be easy to go for another if circumstances permitted.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation
Overall: A world class beer, but for me, not worth the difficulty to obtain. I can get plenty of satisfying DIPAs for much less effort, that are almost as good.
Serving type: bottle
