Not a huge fan of the style, but there is nothing great about it for me. By no means a bad beer, just not my thing.

It's a little bit on the gratuitously hoppy side, which makes a like of what might otherwise be incredibly interesting subtle notes mostly disappear. But over all, still quite nice.

Dark orange to reddish color, with a ton of carbonation, with a two finger frothy head and good lacing. The odor is IPA like, citrus, mandarin, orange, tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, pine, resin, rose, floral, violets. The taste is floral, rose, pine, resin, grapefruit, malty bitter throughout.

12oz. can courtesy of my brother-in-law, poured into an imperial pint.

A- 1-1/2 finger of dense, khaki head. Clean, amber body with moderate carbonation. Head settles to 1/2 finger and leaves good stick.

S- Fresh and slightly hoppy. Grassy, maybe minty. Malts are grainy and slightly sweet.

T- As aroma suggests, fresh and on the hoppy side of balanced. Initial leafy and slightly grapefruit-like hops from the start. Sweet, caramel/toffee-like, and slightly grainy malts peek out in the middle before getting cleaned up by the leafy and slightly spicy/herbal finish. Very flavorful.

M- Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Light bite from the hops.

O- A very flavorful amber that packs a solid hop flavor for the style. Higher ABV comes out as the full flavor. Somehow reminds me of the Vivant Big Red Coq, which a "go-to." Given a renewed availability in MI, I could see buying a bunch. A very solid brew.

Pale amber color, brilliantly clear. Pours a moderate sized white head, creamy and long lasting

Big hop aroma with some nice citrus. A bit of caramel malty sweetness. Slight metallic penny smell in passing.

Hop flavors dominate, with a solventy pine and citrus flavor dominating. Bitterness is subtle, but definitely overcomes any malty sweetness. No sharp transition to bitterness...just seems to hover slightly on the bitter side of balance. Tastes more like a "not crazy bitter" IPA than anything else to me.

Medium body and carbonation. No astringency. Slight hint of warming, but nothing overpowering.

Unexpectedly hoppy beer for me in a cool can. Malt could be more assertive, but makes for an easy drinking 7% ABV hop bomb.
