I am enjoying this beer in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip. It is 2 1/2 weeks old, but I have had it super fresh, so I feel somewhat qualified to review it..I have really nothing to add by reviewing this beer, except to say that this continues to be an impressivly consistant beer..
Appearence is grand, golden honey in color, very clear, perfect white head and lacing, this seems to be the gold standard for DIPAs as far as appearence..
Smell is a pleasent blend of west coast citrus and pine hops...very clean..and the hops are center stage...
the taste is magnificent, beautiful citrus and pine, clean malt backbone, no alchohol burn, no overwhelming sweetness, balanced and smooth..a fantastic finish with a very distant bitterness..
mouthfeel is smooth as hell, excellent carbonation..again this beer is incredebly smooth..no rough edges..
Overall...like I said I am not uncovering anything new..just afforming the fact that this is one world class beer that everyone should try..
