look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle served in a heavy seas shaped pint. Enjoy by 1.9.12 on the bottle, so I believe that means it was bottled 10-9-11 (and has been in the fridge for ~2 weeks), so this is as fresh as I'll ever get it on the east coast.

A- pours an amberish gold with a fluffy 2-finger head. Good clarity, and great lacing.

S- bold piney smell with just a hint of malt in the background. Definitely a west-coast creation.

T- true to the smell, strong, fresh pine from the hops with a noticeable malt backbone (for a west-coast DIPA...). Fairly bitter. A touch of citrus/orange on the finish.

M- fairly creams. Sizeable body on this one, relative to west-coast style.

O- overall a classic, and often underappreciated DIPA. This one does fade noticeably with age, so it's not every day I can find it fresh...but when I can, it's a sure thing.
