Poured from the CAN into my Duvel tulip. Ha, never thought I'd type that sentence. Not sure if this is from my trade with chixdighops or the extra I got from Romulux. Either way, thanks!

A - Brown/orange body with a big light tan head on top

S - Citrus and tropical hops mix to form a fantastic smelling beer. A hint of sweetness lies in the wait as well. Wow... This is one fantastic smelling IPA.

T - A lot more balanced than the nose would indicate. A nice citrus/grapefruit hop bite up front balanced with an equally strong malt backbone. A touch of lingering bitterness similar to an orange rind but not much.

M - medium bodied, light carbonation, smooth

D - Pretty drinkable balanced IPA. I wish the flavor matched the aroma however. Aroma wise this beer is at the top of the pack. Taste wise this is a solid beer. If I had this easily available I would keep it stocked in my fridge. Certainly worth trying.

This beer poured out with a really nice head. It's a mildly dark amber color with a heavy lacing on the glass.

The smell was citrusy and hoppy with a hint of milk. There's also a sweet malt scent in it as well.

The taste was slightly bitter with a nice sweet malt character reminiscent of a scotch ale. There were hints of caramel and tea flavors then finished dry.

Mouthfeel was creamy and perfectly carbonated.

It's very drinkable with a bold taste. A very good IPA.

Sampled through the efforts of Imstillthegman and 1000 Miles (or East/West again) BIF.

A clear brown colored beer with a light brown colored head, among the darkest AIPAs I have ever seen.

Extremely fragrant beer hops leap out and grab your nose from across the room lots of pine and citrus. A close sniff reveals a considerable malt character as well, chocolate and a little cake with some caramel. Pineapple, mango, menthol and pine resin grips the nose most tightly. Considerable wood, tea and coffee scents are in this too I can say it is the most complex scented AIPA yet.

The taste starts out a little sweet and a little bitter at the beginning with a very dry woody after taste. The interplay of the sweet and bitter here reminds me a lot of Arrogant Bastard that I drink often and this could as easily be considered a Strong Ale. Chocolate and coffee peak out around the corners from time to time here but this is mostly a strong and bitter beer.

The mouthfeel is quite full.

Drinkable in the same way that Stone Arrogant Bastard is and it will take more than one can to really determine this. This is a strong beer without a doubt. The thing that strikes me the most about this beer is the fact that if you handed me the glass without seeing the can I would swear on the Bible that this was in fact a glass of Stone Arrogant Bastard, right down to the color of it.
