Bottled 12/31/09.

A- Pours a clear goldenrod color with a one finger head.

S- Grapefruit, pineapple and caramel malt are present aromas.

T- Bitter grapefruit, pine, and orange with a mild caramel malt backbone, and finishes with an unpleasantly dry bitterness. The pine comes across the most in this department.

M-The dryness extends to the mouthfeel and it's something I'm not a fan of. It's medium bodied with low carbonation. The alcohol is palpable on the way down.

D- Not very high, I was expecting something a little more complex. I let this warm quite a bit and I think the negative qualities (dryness, one note flavors) became even more obvious. I'm actually struggling to finish this one.

Pretty well balanced IPA. Good bitterness without the bright west coast finish.

Very resinous and high presence of alcohol. Hint of toffee and not so hoppy, Very long bitterness. Not the best dipa i've had
