12oz bottle into Libbey Tulip
Bottled on 5/17/18
slightly opaque dark honey colorm with thin white head that turns into a ring of lacing
Honey on the aroma,  burst of tangerine and subtle pine
Honey laced malt, smooth mellow flavor, followed by a smooth yet bracingly bitter piney finish
Easy drinking despite high ABV, super dry finish
Overall a nice easy drinking old school IIPA

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is light gold, head is off white with fine bubbles that presents about 1 inch thick and then lingers well with solid 1/4 inch top and great sticky lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is pine dominant then a grapefruit citrus rind finish - big, strong, bitter.

Taste continues the aroma's path - big pine, solid citrus rind and pithiness, some notable malt sweetness but base malt, lighter herbal and grassy flavors as you finish.

Mouthfeel is excellent for a 9.4% brew - light sweetness, good lingering bitterness, perfect carbonation.

Overall a super easy drinking strong DIPA with great flavor, good aroma, and an excellently balanced mouthfeel.

Bottle dated 5/17/18 poured into shaker pint

Smells of citrus and pine.

Extremely bitter taste and piney. Grapefruit stands out as the most dominant. I am also getting a slight sweet note that I can't pick out (probably from the malt) but enjoy.

Overall a bit too bitter for my liking.

L - Hazy golden with hints of orange throughout with a medium white head that dissipates slowly, but leaves some lacing behind.
S - Malt and piney hops with notes of citrus fruits and floral notes.
T - Classic IPA flavors with piney, bitter hops, notes of citrus fruits along with earthy floral notes with a nice malt backbone to tie it all together. No signs of the 9.4% alcohol content
F - Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation - smooth and juicy.
O - A really great DIPA - straight forward and not really deviating from the formula but man does it do them well.
