My buddy Steve flew this one home for me. Bottle poured into my Maudite Tulip. Bottle on date is 11/11/2010 so its about a month and 10 days old.
a lot of hype surrounding this beer so i knew it was going to be good. the appearance is dark orange. kind of cloudy. the smell is like pine and citrus. the beer poured with about a 1" head that dissipated pretty quickly. taste is sweet and hoppy. bitter at the end too. if i had to compare it to another IPA i'd compare it to Southern Tier 2XIPA. real high drinkability for 8% ABV, they hide it very well. good mouthfeel, light carbonation. A really good Double IPA, but in my opinion a lot like many other beers of the same style. it's very good and a great example of the style. i would like to have more of them.
