There's a clearness to it...quite clear. It has a big bubbly white head and there's a ton of lacing. A few bubbles. Wonderful weed-like scent to it.

There's a slight bit of an intense bitterness that is mixed with a floralness, that isn't overbearing...but toes on the line.

Bottled 11/17/11

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Bruery tulip.

A: Pours a clear light amber colour. 2 fingers of dense off white head with good retention and lacing.

S: Nice balance of sweet malts and citrusy hops.

T: Very similar to the nose. This beer is very well balanced. Great malt flavor and a real nice hop profile. Nice lingering butter dry finish.

M: Lively, prickly mouthfeel. Moderate body and moderate carbonation.

Overall this a great DIPA. Great value and even better flavor. I'm really upset that it's not readily available in my area. NEPA'd

What a pour! Terrific snow capped head, straw color, medium carbonation. Sticky lacing on the first sip, continues all the way until the final sip. Scents are of strong pine needles and pungent wicked grapefruit. Wow is this hoppy and bitter. Not much balance for a DIPA. Great brew for an extreme hop head, and although a really good beer, especially in scent and appearance but a bit too tilted toward the hops. One of the hoppiest beers I've ever had. Just not something I could deal with but a couple times a year.
