After many years of waiting, a friend brought me back a bottle while he was in Denver for GABF.
A- Pours an amber-golden color, had a great frothy head that dissipated a bit, but did not completely fade away.
S- Citrus and pine, what you would expect from a good DIPA.
T- Very clean, not overly bitter, more balanced. Bitterness also does not linger on palate excessively.
M- Light and bubbly, not overly carbonated though.
D- For a beer with an 8% ABV, drinks exceptionally smooth. My friend who brought me back the bottle said that this beer is offered by the pitcher at the Falling Rock. I could easily see myself finishing one with only minimal help.
A great DIPA, I suppose after hearing how great it was for the last four years, it would be nearly impossible for anything to live up to the build up though. All in all, an excellent beer.
