Pour: Clear copper color. A huge head that rose at least an inch above the glass and stuck with no spilling over. Excellent retention and lacing.
Smell: Primarily consists if sharp, piney hops. A hint of citrus and an understated malt backbone.
Taste: A rather malty taste kicks things off. Caramel and toffee notes up front give way to a vicious assault of piney and grapefruit bitterness. Surprisingly well balanced, but with a dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full, and creamy body. Low to medium carbonation. Excellent.
Drinkability/Overall: This is a dang good beer. Smooth drinking, great flavor, and slightly quaffable. Dangerously chuggable, the 7% really sneaks up on you!
Final Notes: This beer is good stuff, what can I say? Excellent paired with spicy food. Hop-heads will love this one, but it has enough malt to keep malt-heads happy. I love it.
Serving type: can

Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
