Pours a hazy amber/gold color. Two finger almond colored head, decent retention down to a persistent cap. Good lacing.
Aroma is both floral and citrus. Tangerine, orange zest and grapefruit. Sweet malts.
I love the taste of this, this hoppy beast. Grapefruit and pine are dominate at first, but slowly give way to allow the caramel malts lend their support-and quite nicely. Alcohol makes itself noticeable, but hey, this is an ADIPA. Beautiful hop bitterness and citrus tones all over the dry-ish finish-which really lingers.
Medium in body, oily, somewhat slick mouthfeel. Nice carbonation.
Congratulations Middle Ages, on 10 years!! (Better late than never) Nice job with this-an excellent representation of an ADIPA. A hop-heads dream, others would find it abrasive-I personally love it!
Review from 11/04/06
Thanks to bakes for this bottle.
A - Apricot colored body that is clear and clean. Tan head is two fingers tall, fluffy, and isn't going anywhere.
S - Hops all the way here. Sweet piney hops along with some grapefruit citrus notes. Light pale malt balancing the beer.
T - Sweet pale malt, light pine and citrus bitterness, finishes with a big wave of bittering hops. Bready, grapefruit, apple, and a little sour. Nice.
M - Crisp body with slightly sticky hops. Carbonation is fine bubbles and tickles the tongue a bit.
D - Good DIPA, but not earthshattering. Glad to have another bottle.
