I like this little jack in the box ale that pops up each winter about the time everyone is rushing around buying stuff on black Friday. Very hoppy on the nose approach, and it fulfills the promise on the bitter hop aftertaste, mixed with a little spice, but nothing heavy like the spruce or pumpkin ales I make in my buckets for the season.
Smooth, slightly malt, less attenuated than many IPAs now. Don't know that hops, but would venture Citra. I could wiki it, but that would be cheating. However I encourage you to look it up. The hops are kind of cheesy, but in a good way, like licking your fingers after that brand of corn chips w/ cheese everyone seems to enjoy.
Excellent to mix with stouts for your spur of the moment, home made Black and Tans.

2012 bottle poured into a snifter. The pour is deep orange with a big, firm white head. The aroma is sharp pine. The beer is a very nice mix of pine and citrus, lIngering citrus on the finish. A very easy drinking IPA, good carbonation. A very well made IPA, deserves all the hype it recieves.
