Got to try this one at the Ale Asylum the night before the Great Taste of the Midwest and have had it a couple times on tap now. Just released in bottles this week so I stopped down to pick some up....Over 100 IBU's of hoppy goodness await! On to the review....
A-Very nice. A nearly transparent, dark amber orange, with a nice full inch of cream colored head that eventually disappears to a light skim on top with hints of lacing on the sides of the glass.
S-Pink Grapefruit, pine, hints of sweet tangerines...ever so faint floral and brown sugar whispers.
T-Tasty stuff. Pine rides a beat-up surfboard of caramel and brown sugar on top of a big crashing wave of grapefruit zest. Enough bitterness for any hop head, yet sweet enough to be enjoyable. Reminds me of a strong hopped up version of Ambergeddon, one of my favorites. Lingering dry bitter finish. Tiniest hints of alcohol let you know it's there but certainly doesn't detract from the experience.
M-Very nice mouthfeel. Not too thick, not to thin...just right. Good carbonation, but not overpowering, with a creamy finish.
D-Despite the ABV, this one is pretty drinkable...a couple will go down easy.
Another damn good beer from the local guys at Ale Asylum. One of my favorite breweries with a solid lineup from top to bottom. Extremely happy to see this one bottled!

A hazy, amber-rust, with a fast-going head that sticky's up the glass.
A wholly anonymous aroma, quiet, very reserved. I mean it's hard to get anything in the nose. Some wine-like fruit, candy shell. That's about all, folks.
In the mouth the fruit steps forth as navel orange and pineapple, turning to tart lemonade in the middle. White grapefruit rind bitterness in the long finish. A little sweetness lingers. The 8.5% alcohol is there, but not calling attention to itself.
I wish there were more malt, caramel malt would be nice. The sweet fruit provides balancing. I just wish it were more grainy.
