Had at Downtown Joe's. First off, great name. How can you resist the temptation to try this beer with a name from Animal House?

A - Pours orange with 1 fingered head. Light carbonation and dissipates moderately.

S - Pine, flowers, and caramel.

T - Pretty much the same. Smell and taste are transparent.

M - Good, full mouthfeel. Slightly bitter from the use of centennials.

D - Good overall, but much better examples out there. Would love to see more pungency and flavor from the hops. (500 characters)

Pours a hazy orange gold color with a quirky dissipating off-white head. Lacing coats the glass. The bouquet is phenomenal. Dried sweet fruit, grapefruit, and mown grass. The flavor is a little less bold than the bouquet, but much the same as what is picked up in the olfactory. In fact, the flavor was a little disappointing after having first gotten a whiff of the wonderful bouquet. Mouthfeel is decent, but a little flattened. All in all, a very good DIPA, but I've had so many ridiculously good DIPAs recently that it doesn't rank well. (541 characters)
