I purchased a 4-pack of pint cans and poured one into an American pint glass.
A-Dark golden translucent orange with a two-finger head that dissipated into a white frothy/bubbly head. The head remained on the beer throughout the duration of consumption. Low carbonation. Excellent presentation.
S-Grainy, floral, citrus, heavy hops, pine, and hints of grapefruit. The smell was not as strong as the taste.
T-Floral notes,bready,grapefruit, very high hops, pine, and grains. Hints of sweet malt. Complex flavor and a very balanced taste. The aftertaste was dry, bitter, and black peppery. Nice warming effects from the 7.2% ABV. Quite refreshing for a high alcohol IPA brew.
M-Balanced and medium-bodied. Too complex to really distinguish everything about this. It was just smooth going down.
Overall, this is one of the best IPA's I have had. Nicely balanced flavor and aromas. This is a must have if you like IPA's. You will not be disappointed. It is one those types of beers you have to drink a couple of times in order to identify all the rich ingredients.

a. Golden cooler with 1 finger of foam that lasts at shortly under a finder for the entire beer. The lacing is thick spectacular.
s. Smell is sweet bread, yeast, hops, a bit of citrus.
t. Smooth, rich, not as hoppy as I hoped considering it was an extra IPA. Although the smell had sweet proponents, the beer taste did not reflect this. Very good, but more ale than IPA to me.
m. Carbonation was near perfect.
o. This beer is outstanding at face value, so I gave it a 4.0. That being said the beer did not seem like a true IPA, which was reflected in the Taste score.
