An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a frothy white head. Smells of orange, grapefruit, a little malt sweetness, pine and earth. Taste is much towards the grapefruit side. Bitter orange peels and juice. Some mango and pine. Good malt backbone. The bitterness complements the citrus flavors really well. Mouthfeel is pretty good, if a little thick, but this really drinks easily. Overall a very solid IPA. It's not something I would go out of my way to get, but nice to try from a trade haul.

poured 12oz can into snifter. Canned 11/21/14.

A - Dark hazy orange with a nice 1.5 finger white head. Nice webbed lacing forms and a collar forms around glass edge.

S - Starts off with some bready malts and caramel sweetness. Hop flavors of bitter citrus and pine.

T - More hops up front than the nose would indicate. Bitter citrus, grapefruit pith and pine. Middle fills in with the bready malts and sweet caramel notes. Finish has a nice bitter grapefruit punch.

M - Medium slick mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Lingering bitterness on the palate.

O - Pretty solid, canned IPA, but nothing that distinguishes it from all the other IPAs.

Poured from a growler. Carbonation was still good and strong but not sure when it was filled since it was a gift.

Appearance: pours a deep caramel orange color. a two finger or so white head with strong retention and leaving behind a strong lacing. strong brightness and clarity to it.

Smell: a honey to light caramel sweetness. strong resiny hops. some citrus, pine and spiciness to it.

Taste: opens up with some citrusy and resiny hops. hop taste develops into a piney to earthy spicy taste. in the background are some semi sweet malts. lighter honey-esque than the aroma. ends with some bready malts and more hop resin.

Mouthfeel: carbonation was good. probably would be even a little better in a can. bitterness is strong but not overwhelming, lingers for a little. drinkable and a nice slight dryness.

Overall: a solid IPA offering. perhaps a bit too strong on the caramel style malts for me. also not my first choice of hop varieties but still very good.
