2.86/5 rDev -17.8%
A: slight haze; burnt orange in color; with a fairly aggressive pour, got a 1 finger head that dissipated almost immediately to a patchy film; moderate lacing;
S: not much aroma at all; a little dank pine and caramel malt;
T; taste is also subdued; caramel malts up front; a fruity sweetness from med palate through the finish; no bitterness;
M: a little thin; moderate carbonation;
O: not enough malt to be an English IPA and not enough hops to be an American IPA;

12 ounce bottle, w/o any freshness info that I can find.
Pours clouded medium amber, looser lite khaki head.
Some mint and tea on the nose.
Malty with ample caramel. Too sweet for the style, hops present but way in the rear.
Meh, not really doing it for me.

A: Murky sunkist orange/over-ripened mango red hue. Very fluffy white head with excellent retention.
S: Earthy, woodsy, peppery. Orange citrus and vanilla undertones.
M: Slick and oily, medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Some pithiness at the end.
T: Prickly pine and bright grapefruit combined with a moderate minerality give the impression this was aged in wine barrels. Metallic afterbite and spicy hops. Strong grass notes. Distinct patches of toasted caramel with orange bursts of sweetness.
O: More of an American/English hybrid if you ask me. The Liberty and Magnum hops speak to its European heritage, as well as its pronounced malt flavor, and combined give it a pleasant aroma. Not a hop bomb for sure, but the malts can carry the hop oils nicely...perhaps too nicely as the Amarillo hops gives off too much metallic that hampers the enjoyment of the hop bitterness.
I'm interested in comparing this beer to Maine's Peeper, as the hop bills are nearly identical, save for the substitution of Cascade for Liberty.
