A- poured 1FH orangey and hazy. a little darker than expected.
S- aroma of moderate hops, notes of citrus but with a sweet tone probably from the raisins.
T- with the aroma a bittersweet character with dank hops. more malty than hoppy from what i remember when i had it on tap last year. raisiny sweets initially with a pretty strong alcohol finish.
M- a fairly balanced DIPA that seems to achieve what joe was aiming for. very drinkable.
I- I had this on tap in bellaire last year and was very excited for its release. 2011 on tap I remember being much hoppier with more citrusy hoppy characters and a hint of raisin, which is what hyped me up about the beer. this year's bottle release was a bit disappointing, but nonetheless a very drinkable and delicious beer. will have no problem finishing off my sixer! Cheers!
