look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
The dreadnaught drill: 22 oz. bomber poured into an Arrogant Bastard pint glass...
A: Vigorous pour leaves me with a slightly cloudy amber-honey colored beer topped by a mountain of frothiness. The head soon settles to about a thin 1/4 inch, and thick sticky lacing coats the glass as i drink.
S: Wonderful bouquet of sweet, pale malts, citrus peel and abundant lupulins.
T: Sweet right up front, and it lingers for a moment. A tidalwave of intense tangerine goodness asserts itself dominately. Very nice. A bit of alcohol in the middle too. Somewhere then about now you get a dose of spicy hops, although it's not very aggressive it completes the experience and marks the finish, which is a long one...
M: Resiny and creamy, with noticeable carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Very good.
D: I thought i could put this down easily, but it sneaks up on you. Just over halfway through my bomber i'm feeling it (but, i did precede it with a DFH 90 min.) Deceptively strong, and the bittering effect does tend to take over after awhile... probably couldn't realistically goe more than one deep given the size.
Give it a try.

This defines the style, or what the style could be. Light bubbles. Upfront pineapple and mango pine florals balanced with caramelized citrus and butterscotch. Larger body than expected. Creamy and chewy. First rate. Almost a perfect 5, but maybe I haven't had a fiver yet?

Poured from a bomber into my Deschutes tulip, no bottle date...
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color, with a finger of tan head.
S - The smell is malty/honey, with with some notes of tropical fruit.
T/M - The taste is a pleasant combination of a solid malt backbone, and some mango & pineapple.The bitterness hangs around on my tongue for a while. Mouthfeel is medium, good carbonation.
O - Such a solid IPA! Hits all the right notes with me, and I would always have this is my fridge if I could get it here in Vegas. But I can't, so I'm gonna go and enjoy the hell outta this one. Cheers!
