Pours orangish red (not sure that's a color but that was it is), crystal clear, thick and static body. There's a half finger head with a touch of light lacing and carbonation.
A wonderful mango, citrus, and more citrus hop notes are wonderful on the nose.
Hops to start, hops in the middle, hops at the end. I think they got the message that people like hops! These hops go from citrus, piny, and even put off a bit of earth notes. The citrus American hops dominate here. The malt or maybe the yeast has a nice bit of nuttiness in the finish with just enough fruity malt flavors here to keep things in control. Think double bastard only even more hop forward and bigger.
Thick and heavy with just a touch of carbonation.
I've had this a few times, tap and bottle and it varies from place to place. This is a very great example of this beer. it isn't the best, but it is exceptional. I cannot put how wonderful this beer is. It is an odd style to consider. It is about as big as a hop forward IPA can possibly be. Any larger and the malt might get out of whack.

4.11/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish
I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
