So. Hemisphere Double IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Intense pine, herbal and citrus flavor.
Featuring New Zealand hops Rakau, Pacific Jade and Waimea, this double IPA packs intense pine, herbal and citrus flavor and aroma with tropical fruit notes."

A bit too much pine initally, but the tropical fruits mellows it out.
My least favorite of the Southern Hemisphere Experimental Variety 12-pack (but still very good).

ABV 8.0%,IBU 70
Hops: Waimea, Pacific Jade & Rakau
Malt: Two-row Pale, Acidulated, C-15, Flaked Oats, Wheat
Yeast: Ale
