Served from bottle to an imperial pint. Bottled on 8/18/2011, enjoyed on 9/20/2011.
A: Clear, golden, with active carbonation. Thick, foamy white head leaves very nice lacing and sticks around.
S: Piney hops, pine sap, and spearmint leaves.
T: Very complex and well-balanced. Biscuity malts, pineapple, grassy hops, and honey sweetness. Strong hops presence without ripping your tongue out. Only gets better as the beer warms a bit.
M: Excellent mouthfeel. Exceptionally smooth for the amount of hops and high ABV. The alcohol is masked very well and warms without ever being a component of the flavor. Extremely drinkable for what it is.
O: Top-flight DIPA lives up to its billing. One of the top beers I've ever had for sure.
