I have had this too many times to count, but I'm finally getting around to reviewing this beer... Thanks, Mike.
A: Pours a perfect translucent light amber with only a small layer of pure white foam that lines the top of the beer. The head settles quickly into a thin bubbly layer along the edges of the glass. There is a good amount of lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is big pine, and juicy orange citrus. It's not over the top pungent. It's just right. This beer smells great (ever after a month).
T: I am met straight away with a light malty sweetness, which transitions into huge juicy orange citrus, followed by some floral qualities. As it moves to the middle, I get a ton of spicy pine notes, but it's balanced well by the hops. The pine notes linger as the sweet malt moves off.
M: Medium bodied beer. It's sweet right away, gets big and hoppy in the middle, turns spicy and stinging towards the end, and finishes smooth. This is an easy drinking DIPA that coats the palate, but slides off beautifully as it progresses along the palate.
O: Love this beer. One of, if not "the", best DIPA I've ever had. It's almost flawless. Wish I could drink this everyday.
