look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Rich copper, with a thick, Cream-colored head.
S: Citrus up front, withthe pine following right behind, mingling slightly with the citrus, for a pleasant, hoppy aroma that I can only describe as California. Usual "Beer"taste smell somewhat present, but masked. Alcohol not very apparent in the aroma.
T: Pine leads the flavor charge, followed closely by citrus, in a reversal of the aroma, decent malt presence makes this a very enjoyable brew, a bit more balanced than the Torpedo made by the same brewery.
M: A bit on the lighter side, considering the amount of flavor and alcohol in this beer. Could be deceptive to those not accustomed to IPAs
O: Easy to see why they release this brew during the winter time. Gave a very nice warmth throughout my body, while keeping my palate entertained with its rich, hoppy flavors. Cpuld have a heavier mouthfeel, though
