3.69/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 12oz can, best before 13 Oct 2013, courtesy of Greywulfken. Presumably pretty fresh -- thanks! :)
A: Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a finger of fluffy white head that dissipates to a spotty film sustained by sparse bubbling. Lacing is spotty but plentiful down the glass.
S: Great aroma of fresh, earthy and citrusy character explodes from the can upon opening and ramins strong in the glass. Upon warming, alcohol begins to show through in the nose, but the predominant aromas of hops and sweet malts remain strong. A nice smelling beer.
T: Sadly, probably my least favorite part of this beer, and not aided too much by the dryness of the mouthfeel. Strong and sharp citric bite up front leads into a little malt sweetness balancing out a ton of bitterness. Hops provide citrus character, a flavor I can only describe as green (in a plant way), and an almost onion-like flavor. On warming, alcohol also shows through strongly. The dryness of the finish compounds with the bitterness to leave an otherwise crisp finishing beer less refreshing than I was hoping it might be.
M: Nice medium body fills the mouth aided by reasonable carbonation that could be a little stronger. Fairly dry on the finish. Nicely crisp.
O: A good beer, but not one I'm itching to revisit. The hop profile in this beer is unique among IPAs I've had, and I think with fair reason. It is really close to being nice and refreshing, particularly for a 9abv beer, but the bitterness and dryness really left me wanting more refreshment than I was getting.

4.5/5 rDev +10.6%

Canned beer served in a pint glass.
Thick, foamy head which is long lasting. Off-white in colour. Leaves plenty of lacing. Cloudy, honey colour with suspended particles. Slow rising, small bubbles.
Sweet, fruity, hops, pine, apricot, peaches. The aromas are strong and hit you in the face on opening.
Bitter hops, grapefruit, dried apricots, mandarin, mint, and some caramel sweetness.
Cut grass aftertaste.
Plenty of bitterness and being high IBU, the alcohol notes are present.
Slight prickly pop rocks fizz.
Thick, creamy body, not much froth.
Strong aromas and lots of flavour. A thoroughly enjoying beer, and despite it's bitterness, it's refreshing and goes down easily. Plenty about it to enjoy and lots of complexity to enjoy on every sip. Hoppy and in IPA territory, but with more malty sweetness than usual.
