look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear orange-tinged light amber. Decent head in the Ommegang chalice with a quite zingy carbonation on the tongue. Actually quite lovely with the creamy lacing in the glass. Mouthfeel is just a little oily and the body is more on the robust side.

Aroma of pineapple orange. Taste is a big IPA with a toasty, bitter mouthful with a dose of marmalade. Finish is rather hot and spicy. Some resins and a touch of grapefruit peel, but not terribly bitter. Just normal bitter. Fruity and malty but not sugary. Some crazy bottom of the pond sediment I see after a few short pours.

This seems to be trying to climb into the DIPA category, though it's not so sweet. Really tangy and bubbly. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Baron's Marketplace in San Diego.

Extra bottle in a trade with? Sorry I misplaced you, but thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a decent sized creamy white head that persists for quite some time before leaving some nice lace on the sides. Aromas of floral and grassy hops with hints of pine and citrus dominate the nose. A solid hit of caramel bready malt with lots of fruity esters and a hint of ethanol. The flavor is sweet bready toffee and caramel with less hop flavor than the aroma suggested. Citrus and pine flavors are moderate and the bitterness is moderate to high. Medium body with a fairly drying finish, moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet resinous mouthfeel. Decent IPA, a bit old school, but a bit rough around the edges. I could drink this, but would probably choose something else first. No bottle dating is a turn off, I wonder about the age of this one actually.

22oz bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar – Escondido, CA
Notes from 01/01/14 – FW Snifter glass

A: Lupulin Thrill pours a deep caramel amber color with nice clarity and visible carbonation. Thick finger width of khaki foam adorns the top settling out to a ring in some good time. Some nice patch work of swathed lacing adheres to the glass after each sip.

S: The nose brings forth concentrated resinous pine and evergreens with some citrus zest and a touch of dirty herbals. There is some underlying pale malt sweetness that is a mix of bread with soft caramels. Fairly nice and hoppy aromas. Big on the pine and herbs.

T: Firm malty base of bready malts with a dash of caramelized sweetness. Dry flaky biscuit even. The hops are heavy on the pine and herbals with a light floral backing of citrus tangerine. There is high level of hop bitterness to the beer and the alcohol is well masked throughout. The finish is dry and resinous with a long lasting linger. Not bad but a slight step down from the nose.

M: Lighter body with only some moderate malt fullness and nice smooth consistency from the carbonation. Upper level of scrubbing bitterness with a nice dry crisp and long lasting linger on the finish.

D: More of a “no thrills” IPA with its high alphas/low flavor. More bready malt comes through on this one and I’m not a super fan of the hop selection here. Otherwise the beer is fairly well crafted and drinkable just not all that impressive however.
