Thanks kpanter for hooking me up with this FL treat. Canned 7 Nov 12

A- Poured from a can into my DFH snifter. A nice deep orangish/amber with a 1 finger head that fades fast. Very hazy with bits of sediment floating around.

S-Has a very distinct fruity aroma of mangos and pineapples that is quite pleasing. There is also a bready/yeast scent that blend well with the fruits. The only reason that I scored it so low was the aromas where muted, they didn't jump out at me like I prefer with an IPA.

T-Upfront I get a spicy bitterness then SWEET caramel malts with small hints of the tropical fruit that was in the nose. Then a piney bitterness as the beer goes down.

M-Heavy and syrupy with moderate levels of carbonation.

O-Not a bad IPA, I can see the allure. I just prefer my IPA's lighter with crisper flavors. This was canned 3 months ago, but this was the last out of the 6er and the first one I had a month ago, I felt the same way about.
