3.39/5 rDev -6.9%
Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.
A: Dark golden hue. Pours about a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Settles pretty quickly. Leaves a smattering of bubbles on the surface. Pretty substantial beer ring lacing. Head renews with each new pour.
S: Pine resin, honey, and a little citrus, and a little butterscotch.
T: Papery and piney.
M: Kind of a chalky feel. Harsh piney hop, with no sweet balance. Dry finish.
D: Sip and enjoy. The harsh hop character will dictate it.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Dark golden with a nice foamy head, and some persistent beer ring lacing. Nose is syrupy pine resin with some accentuates of honey and lemon citrus. Harsh piney hop, with a papery or cardboard character, a chalky feel, and a dry finish. None of the implied sweetness from the nose comes out in the flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows lychee, peach, orange blossom, pine and sweet cookie dough-like malt. Nice.
Pretty aggressive flavours. Not much malt, just a soft clean hit. Lots of pine and grapefruit. Sharp aggressive bitterness in the finish.
Soft carbonation could be higher.

Poured into Jester King goblet.
A- Cloudy orange pour w/ moderate head that lingers a while. Nice lacing.
S - Very mild aroma - a little citrus, but none of the floral hop notes you'd expect from an IPA.
T - The hops are there on the pallette, but not to the extent I expected from the decription of the beer. A nice balance between hop and malt, but definitely leans towards the bitter. Alcohol is a little more forward than I would have expected given the ABV. Not a lot of complexity though.
M - Light to medium-light mouthfeel, with a little bite from the carbonation.
O - Enjoyed it, but not something I'd go out of my way to trck down again. It does make a nice change of pace from some of the extremely hoppy IPA's that craft brewers seem focused on lately. Boozier and more bitter than a basic pale ale, which I suppose is the core of what an IPA is at the base level.

22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden copper with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet sugary melon and dank piney peppery hops.
The flavor is is a let down - earthy grassy bitterness, a little sugary fruit, and some cardboard notes. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very watery.
Overall, I was excited after pouring, but the flavors are not bright and a bit off and it's really watery.

Clear apricot colroed with a thick beige head of foam that lingers long and slowly recedes. Low aroma of citrus hops, some lightly toasted malt. Fresh hoppy flavors full of tangerine and grapefruit rind, some piney notes. Good honied malt backbone, but the hops really shine through on this one. Dry mouthfeel, a bit puckery in the cheeks from the hop bitters, but full. Very enjoyable beer overall.
