look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
22 oz. bottle served in Solemn Oath snifter. Bottled 2/27/13. Thanks to rnorgart for the bottle!
A: Pours a murky dark orange color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. it recedes to thick ring with some sticky sheets of lace left down the glass.
S: Bready malts with some earthy hop spice. A little dried grass with some mild citrus peel.
T: There are a ton of flavors going on in this one. There's a dark bread spiciness with some herbal hops. Very earthy in nature. White bread sweetness from malts as well with a light piney bitterness. Light lemon zest with a little orange pith as well.
M: Medium bodied with a little heft to it. Moderate chew, but easy drinking with a medium soft carbonation. Slight bitterness to the finish without too much drying.
O: Definitely more of an English style IPA in my opinion, but pretty balanced between the earthy and spicy hops and sweet bread malts.

3.58/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy, golden-orange color with one finger of head that fades slowly with thick lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malt, floral hops, some grassy earthyness, a little pine
Taste: Just a flash of creamy malt sweetness, then a rush of strong, piney bitterness. Some sweetness reappears on the the back end, but that trails off in the lingering, bitter finish. There is a definite green hop, slightly harsh quality to the finish which boarders on unpleasant.
The Rest: A decent IPA lacking in the balance department. Not enough else going on to balance out the massive hop bill. Drinkablity suffers a bit from the harsh finish as well.
