Rated based on notes taken 1 Sep 2012 -- I was pretty surprised, this was a well crafted brew from Leinenkugels! Pretty good balance, not quite the West Coast hop bomb that are my favorites, but well done.

I really enjoyed this. Tons of malts and hops that are pretty evenly balanced. Looks beautiful and actually easy to drink the whole four pack. Great stuff.

Lemke10 (980) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2015
2012 vintage, this pours a semi-cloudy, dark amber color with a slight head. The aroma is fairly sweet which might have happened with the aging. The taste starts fairly sweet and ends with a pine, bitter finish. Very easy drinking.

Reviewed from notes. Im surprised Ive never said anything on this until now, woops, my bad. Anyways, poured into a snifter, the appearance was a glossy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly died off and leaving barely any lacing. The smell had a bright citrus aroma with a slight grapefruit edge. Lurking behind is a light presence of dried caramel malts. The taste was semi-sweet but still carried the normal bitter edge widely accepted amongst most DIPAs. On the palate, a long sweet to spicy to bitter grapefruit-esque aftertaste led into a dry finish. This one when fresh is a sipper but as it ages like most DIPAs, this one shows its gracefulness or lack there of and becomes fairly harsh in about three months time. Overall, you know this can be a good DIPA if consumed fresh, but though stated 9%, in three months time, it really doesnt last longer.

"Within its best by date but lacking in fresh hop aroma and flavor. Lots and lots of spice, biscuit and caramel. Ive really liked the big eddy stout and scotch ale, but this is just bittersweet and under aerate for the style. 1 timer."
