Enjoy by date on bottle: 1.24.12

A: Typical west coast appearance, golden orange, almost honey color with an off-white creamy head.

S: My favorite smell, reeks of pine and grapefruit-y citrus.

T: It's an older bottle so IBUs aren't as high, I would say around 80. Taste is a mirror of the nose with hops and grapefruit. At this point it is basically a hoppier stone IPA.

M: Sticky, hop bitterness lingers on the palate a long time.

O: A great beer, this is not as fresh as it should be do I don't get the crazy high bitterness, but that's not necessarily a bad thing because I still get a ton of flavor.

Had on cask at 12 South Taproom in Nashville.

Beer poured a nice orangish-yellow with about 2 fingers worth of very rich, creamy head.

Beer smelled very citrusy and sweet. Also a bit grassy.

Beer tasted sweet initially from the citrusy hops and then finished very bitter with hints of grapefruit.

Beer tasted very creamy since it was on cask and was a much nicer mouthfeel that normal. Really worked well with the bitterness.

Great bitter DIPA.
