3.78/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle was poured into a tuliped glass

Appearance: Beer pours a one finger head that is reducing and leaving some lacing on the glass. A nice burnt orange and red color and very foggy/hazy. Saw some particles floating around in the beer from the botton of the bottle to the glass. Really hope those floaties were part of the package and not a dissapointment of things to come. Finally can see carbonation in the glass after things have settled. I still see floaties in the beer, but still drinking it.

Smell: Very clean orange/tangerine/grapefruit right up front. Some breadiness and pine are right behind

Taste: Same as above. Bready yeast and pine are more prevalent. Bitterness is really high. Oh,oh there are the booze. Will have to say that the booze is hidden nicely and not upfront right at ya.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, smooth, slightly chewy, boozy, medium carbonation.

Overall: This was a nice little treat from our trip to an from Pittsburgh. Happy that I picked up a bottle and hopefully someday will have more from this Tri State brewery. Hopefully they will start to distribute to the eastern side of the state. Don't see myself going to the Pittsburgh area too often in the future.

I will have to say that I don't mind the floaties, but others might. They ahould let people know that it is bottle coniditioned or slightly unfiltered. Still a good beer and it didn't ruin my review. Thanks boys.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/31/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, pine resin, grass, floral, caramel, toffee, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Ok aromas with very harsh smelling hop presence that is a bit too vegetal; with moderate malt balance and big strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, pine resin, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, grass, floral, caramel, toffee, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine resin bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, pineapple, pine resin, caramel, toffee, bread, floral, grass, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Ok flavor balance and complexity big pine/citrus hop flavors with moderate malt balance; with harsh and vegetal hop flavors and a fair amount of cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick, sticky, and resinous mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very mediocre double IPA. Far too much harsh and vegetal character from the hops makes this moderately unpleasant, but it was not undrinkable.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Semi hazy orange gold with two fingers of fluffy off white head a net of lacing on the sides.
S - Outrageous amount of alcohol in the aroma, grapefruit, sweet orange candy, dank pine, caramel, toffee.
T - This is a task to drink, there's so much alcohol here its retarded. IBU's off the scale, very abrasive, lots of very sweet malt of caramel, sugary candy, toffee, grapefruit and citrus, a little pineapple.
M - Overwhelming alcohol burn, chewy cloying sweet burn.
O - I liked this before, or so I though, I know the recipe was changed in recent times, but obviously not for the better. Too extreme and unbalanced. Full Pint needs to scrap this and make a better successor to Chinokee. I dare to say this is borderline American Barleywine.
