3.76/5 rDev +2.2%
A: Pours a crystal clear bright orange to copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some deep amber highlights. The beer has a three finger tall pillowy light beige head that slowly reduces to mottled thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer, a couple of medium patches of thick film, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with a touch of light fruits upfront. Moderate aromas of citrus/orange/tangerine and pine hops.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts that imparts very little sweetness to the overall flavor of the beer. There are moderate to strong flavors of citrus/orange/tangerine and pine hops which impart a moderate to heavy amount of bitterness which lingers for a long time.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.
O: This beer has quite a bit of lingering bitterness but is still pretty enjoyable. Not the easiest beer to drink because of the intensity of the bitterness but there are some nice hop flavors in it.

3.9/5 rDev +6%
poured from a can with best by date of 5/3/13 stamped on it
A sessionable IIPA? Its flavors are not as much of a hop battering ram as most American IIPA's.
Good two finger head, fair lacing, a bit hazy light copper color.
Lots of floral notes in the scent, rose, orange blossom, some hay or clover honey.
The flavor follows this, where a lot of citrusy iipa's tend towards grapfruit, this seems more like clementines, sweeter, less tart. Finishes with a lot more of the bitterness of the tart grapefruit flavors, almost metallic, and a bit astringent. The IBUs are definitely back loaded on the finish.
