Poured from a 500ml bottle dated 01/03/2012
A - pours a very light orange with a finger and a half of white, somewhat rocky head. Clear, but not brilliant. Head stays around with a thin layer that leaves some lacing.
S - MMM! citrusy and piney hops overwhelm anything else that might be contained within.
T - A slight piney flavor up front that quickly is overtaken by loads of citrus hops. Crisp and refreshing. A nice bitterness that lingers slightly without being too harsh or lasting too long.
M - A somewhat thin beer that has just enough body to stand up to the hops. Any thinner might be too thin, but this is perfect.
D - Easy to drink. The crispness tied with an awesome hop finish leaves you wanting it just as much drink after drink.
Overall, a fantastic DIPA that is extremely drinkable.
