12oz bottle poured into a perfect pint. Enjoy by 11/30/13
A - Straw golden in color showing good clarity. White head dissipates rather quickly.
Some spotty lacing.
S - Nice oily dank hops. Strikes me as pine heavy, still citrusy as well. Layer of bisquit malt shows some balance.
T - Big piney hop flavors right away and throughout. Very little sign of malt. Bitterness shows up midway and only grows till the finish. Wow that gets bitter, hops are all sorts of oily and just crammed in there. Finish leaves a influx of hop flavor and alcohol.
M - Medium body, medium-light carbonation, bone dry.
O - Classic bitterness profile starting modestly and then just letting the flood gates go. More so than usual, very one sided beer which I am beginning to warm up to more. Aroma pops out but lacks some dimension, flavor is also the same story. That mouthfeel is perfect and should be emulated. A cornerstone of the American IPA style.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
