Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: thagr81us on 01-04-2011

A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermentor for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

Canned 9/2/13. Pours a hazy golden with a massive head that lingers and laces very well. Nose is of citrus hops that are well balanced against a slight pine background. Grapefruit, orange and tangerine are discernible. Light medium body and very well carbonated. The delicious taste follows the nose against a slightly sweet backbone. Mild bitterness is well balanced with citric hop flavor and tartness over a slightly sweet background. Tamer than their citrus ninja variant, in a good way. Crisp finish from a burst of carbonation that leaves a exceptional lingering tart bitterness and flavor. An excellent IPA. Even at almost 4 months age, this is world class.

12oz can poured into a snifter. 12/02/13 on the bottom.

A: Pours a hazy amber gold with a dense off white head. Loads of visible carbonation in this one. Nice lacing as the head dwindles down.

S: Fresh hop aroma with a nice citrus tone. Earthy and floral as well. Herbal qualities as well. Malts add some sweetness to the background.

T: The best way to describe this would be succulent hops. The combination of sweet malts and fresh hops really makes for a mouth watering combination.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Has a nectar like mouthfeel that can be enjoyable in IPA's. Finish is a bit sticky. Hops dry out the tongue.

Overall this is an IPA you can enjoy all night. Has a great kick of bitterness and substantial hop flavor. Something thats certainly worth picking up.

12 ounce can, w/o freshmess info that I can find.

Pours hazed dull lighter tangarine, gauzy eggshell head, leaves a decent collar, fine film and nice fine scattered sheets and strands of lacing.

Oranges and resiny hops in the nose.

Hopped up but not overly bitter, loads of mixed citric fruits, and a moderate resiny hop finish. Better then average, fruity, quite pleasant and assertive IPA in a can, what could be bad?

Well worth a try.
