Review from 01/10/07

This review started as a side by side tasting with what I deem to be some of the greatest DIPAs out there. Pliny vs. Dreadnaught vs. Goose Island IIPA vs HopSlam.

A - Pours a clean light golden body with minimal bubble action. Small head that recedes. Very nice lacing that sticks all the way down.

S - Nice hop profile to the nose of this one. Typical of a SD DIPA, there are big floral, citrusy hops all over here. Lighter than expected, but very nice.

T - The hop profile in this one doesn't hit right away. Starts sweet and fruity. Towards the middle/finish of the taste of this one, the hops hit. Grapefruit and lemon are wonderful. Great taste.

M - Medium bodied. Carbonation is subtle, but good.

D - Of the upper escelon of DIPAs, this one is lighter than most. Mouthfeel is lighter and not sticky like the rest. This is a great beer, mind you, but not up there with Dreadnaught.
