Big thanks to trodersark for this one! Bottled on 5/26/2011 and poured into a snifter.
A- beautiful, hazy orange color with a pillow soft 1.5 finger head. looks like fluffy clouds outside the airplane window, and makes you want to jump right in!
S- sweet, sweet hops! a nice bit of pine in there as well. i can tell im gonna like this one!
T- simple, yet complex. grapefruit, pine, and just a little bit of sweetness. not nearly as sweet as i expected from the smell. very nice caramel malt finish with a bittersweet ending on the tongue. the taste is good, but the finish is world class.
M- LOTS of carbonation from start to end. crisp and incredibly refreshing. not "sticky" like a lot of DIPAs tend to be.
O- I really enjoyed this beer and can now understand the hype. would love to have this again while sitting on the patio on a hot summer day.
