12 oz tall boy can into a pint glass. Best Before: September 11, 2013....so its pretty fresh no?

A - Pours a hazy amber body with a finger of white foam. Decent amount of lacing with minimal retention.

S&T - Pine, grapefruit, and sweet bubble gum. The taste is piney and very sweet with candied peaches and bitter grapefruit. Despite the high IBU it's not over the top bitter. Surprisingly delicious. Mouth feel is medium bodied, slick, and oily.

O - Damn, this beer really surprised me. Candied peaches and resinous piney hops. This is a stand out beer that I always overlooked.

Appearance- Golden amber color under a mild foamy head. Pours a large head that quickly dissipates. Slightly opaque.

Smell- Not overpowering but straightforward. Citrus and floral aromas appear first. More complex and underlying tones less apparent. Overall a welcoming and inviting smell.

Mouthfeel- Heavy carbonation sting up front gives way to a medium body feel on the palet.

Taste- Hops and citrus up front. Both linger for a relatively long time. Aftertaste is left bitter and a slight stale taste. Mild bite of alcohol is noted on the end. Refreshing taste, great for a hot day in my opinion. Overall it lives up to its expectations of smell and does not disappoint or overwhelm.

Overall- You won't notice the alcohol content unless you read the label. Not an overly aggressive beer. Good first beer for those interested in beginning to convert to ipa's. If your not afraid of a little bitter bite try this beer and you will enjoy it.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Hazy light amber color with a one finger sticky head. Some lacing down the glass.

Aroma is very citrusy and piney, strong but not overpowering.

Flavor is more citrus and pine resin. Very bitter, but pleasing on the palate. Bitterness comes back again late with the delayed aftertaste. Less enjoyable as time goes on.

Mouth feel is good and suitable for style.

A solid DIPA, but hard to enjoy a whole can.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange color, half finger of head

Smell is sweet hops all the way, floral and cirtus at first, pine... no malt to be found, smells great!

Taste is sweet orange, pine, oily resins, bittering grapefruit, finishes with a bitter pine aftertaste

Mouthfeel is medium light with average carbonation.

Then lack of malt body really makes this one feel like a single and not a double! However the hop taste begs to differ!! Really good stuff here!
