look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. From label, bottled on July 15, 2010 so definitely not fresh in terms of an American IPA but here goes...
A - Poured a hazy orange with an off-white quarter inch head. Very little lacing.
S - Wonderful smell of candy-like malt sweetness with citrusy pineapple fruitiness. As the beer warmed, more caramel notes emerged.
T - Initial malt sweetness followed by a counteracting strong hop bitterness that leads into a slightly boozy burn that lingers along with the bitterness through the end. The booziness increases as the beer warms but in no way overpower the brew. Overall a well balanced beer between sweetness and bitterness.
M - Little carbonation but not a problem for this particular beer. Good body for an IPA.
D - Overall, a very well balanced brew with hop bitterness ultimately dominating as it should in an IPA. Goes down smooth and easy and could have a few of these at one sitting no problem.

A- poured to a pint glass. Dark orange, even brownish hue. 1 finger head, leaving a nice lace. Hazy in clarity, not necessarily appealing so I docked it a bit for that
S- at first nose I got cotton candy. Draw two brought out a good balance of malt and hops. Pine, woodsy, apple, subdued but solid.
T- lots of tasty, I mean friggin tasty caramel up front, stays with it through the palate. The hops is present, but the focus is elsewhere. The malt base is smooth. Grassy at times. This beer mellows to a nice warm smooth finish. It makes a strong and focused, yet singular statement
M- medium to aggressive hops. Surprisingly it fits this beer. The mouthfeel smartly takes the focus off the beer taste then allows your mind to wander back. Ends silky on the tongue but not milky. Well done
O- this beer is very focused. If your palate digs the groove, then it hits a homerun. If not there is not enough complexity to cover the masses. In my case, it sits well with me. Ergo, home run in my opinion!
