look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle dated 4-28-11. Poured into a Russian River Pint Glass...

A) Nice hazy yellow with a full head. Very nice lacing.

S) Get a very nice sweet aroma.

T) Starts out sweet with the citrusy hops followed by a bit of bitter grapefruit zest that quickly dissipates with the malt. This beer prepares you for your next taste!

M) Nice and lightly carbonated.

O) A classic what more can I say.

Clear orange glow with tightly laced white head. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose. Lots of tropical fruit on the palate too, mangos and pineapples. Enough malt to balance the hops along with a nice building bitterness that grows with each sip. Lot milder then expected but great flavors, not overbearing, and extremely drinkable. One of the few beers to live up to its reputation but still not my favorite DIPA.
