Poured from a 12 oz. can (Best Before 26NOV2012) into a snifter glass.
A strong pour yields a 1-finger cream-colored head that fades after a couple minutes to a thin dusting and thin foam collar. The body is a translucent orange amber with very few carbonation bubbles. Some decent lacing can be seen between sips but seems to have trouble fighting against gravity.
The nose certainly has a lot going on. Of course, the most noticeable aroma is pine - sticky, resinous pine. Once you get past this, you can discover aromas of orange-like citrus and sweet caramel. After swirling the beer a bit, some sharp alcohol notes become apparent.
Almost perfectly telegraphed from the nose, each sip starts with sticky pine flavors, followed closely by orange and mango citrus flavors. These are all wrapped in a sweet caramel shell with a lingering alcohol heat that singes the tongue. As the beer is swallowed, the flavors quickly vanish. There truly is an odd void of flavor after the swallow. The alcohol warmth then begins to reemerge in the back of the throat. After this takes hold, a grassy bitterness descends upon the rest of the mouth.
Medium to full bodied with great carbonation, this beer is amazingly drinkable considering its 9.1% ABV. The body is thick and sticky, which allows all the flavors to properly present themselves and make an impression. The carbonation is good and fizzy, helping to cut the stickiness of the body and increase the carbonation. The swallow is good and crisp but leads to a dry finish.

Purchased from the packey best by 05092015.
A: cloudy yellow with a thin ring of bubbles, that lacing hangs around forever.
S: Middle roasted malts, spicy resinous pine needles with bitter citrus. Mild peppery yeast and everything just blends well. Very well presented IPA notes.
T: Follows nose. The mild weediness, pine and citrus peek up and stay up. bitter-orangy-grapefruity finish.
M: Semi-creamy, coating well with a smooth, velvety finish. Some signficant bitter notes poke up and subside in the dry, creamy finish. It is a HUGE finish on the dry and bitter side.
O: Give me more of THIS. Between citrus, bitter, dry, and pine....this is a balance on the edge of too much. But it is not.
