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.
