A BIIIIG thanks to Cstromberg57 for this one. Bottle dated 11/17/11. Awaited the arrival of my beautiful girlfriend to crack this one open; she made me promise...
DIPA's are usually not my first choice of beers, so the fact that I'm rating this at the level I am, certainly says something. It is one of the best looking beers around. That golden honey coloration with the orangish tinge creates a prism like quality. The citrus nose changes as it warms, with a floral undertone emerging. Taste is spectacular and the expected bite just isn't there. It smooth, clean and damn near perfect. While not a double, the only beer I have found to be better (in similar style), is Hill Farmstead's Edward. I'd love to try this one on tap, and patiently await the day when RR starts distributing in NY.
