12 oz. can served in a FFF 15th Anniversary pint. Best by date of January 2013.

A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a frothy collar and leaves some traces of sticky lace behind.

S: Definitely lives up to its name so far. Big pine needle and resinous hops are right up front with this guy. Some candied sugar sweetness with a little alcohol flavors.

T: Piney and resinous hops, but there is lingering malt bill that makes it a little sweeter. Definitely hop oils create a lingering bitterness that lasts through out. There is also a lingering alcohol flavor as well.

M: Medium bodied. A little sticky with medium carbonation. Lasting bitterness in the finish.

O: Ho hum in my book. Pretty one dimensional in the flavor. Definitely take a pass on this one.

12oz can poured into a snifter, pours orange in color, slightly viscous looking as it comes out of the can, with a fluffy off-white head that holds good retention and leaves sticky lacing on the glass. Tropical aromas of pineapple, mango, citric hop, mandarin orange, honey, with a sticky sweet malt presence, slight grain. Tastes are sweet and tropical up-front with pineapple and mango in the forefront followed by caramel, pungent grapefruit, and piny bitterness, tingly on the tongue as it goes down with a moderate alcoholic warmth. Medium bodied ale with ample carbonation. For being 103ibu it finishes pretty well balanced but has a lingering astringency on the end. Overall, good take on one of my favorite styles.

12 ounce can, stamp on the bottom says best before 26 November 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. There's a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), pine hops, and some caramel malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's some earthy/floral hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has moderate carbonation and it's a bit creamy. I'd like to try this fresher in the future. It's a solid brew, but I prefer other Double/Imperial IPA's compared to this one. With that being said, this is still definitely worth trying.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours extremely hazy red orange color with a dense 2-3 finger khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine, floral, caramel, biscuit, grass, and herbal spiciness. Nice aromas with good balance; but are pretty faint for being a DIPA. Taste of big grapefruit, orange, caramel, biscuit, herbal, floral, pine, grass, and earthy spiciness. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, caramel, bread, herbal, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very malt forward in flavor profile despite being 103 IBU; but still has some good balance. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a creamy, sticky, and slick mouthfeel. Very smooth to sip on for 9.1%; with only a slight alcohol warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA. Good malt flavor balance with bitterness makes this very smooth to sip on without being overwhelming. Quite enjoyable stuff.

Orange in color with a yellow hue and a deep haze. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet caramel malt aromas up front with earthy ripe grapefruit, pineapple, and pine hops underneath. Aroma gets boozier as this warms. Medium bodied with a resinous feel from start to finish. Earthy, musty, pine hop and sweet malt flavors with citrus hop flavors riding beneath. Finishes with a lingering, musty pine hop bitterness and a noticeable booziness.
