Canned on 2/24/12.

Pours a clear copper color with a 1 inch puffy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A latticework of small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of herbal and vegetal hops. There is a slight onion/garlic aroma but nothing like Gubna. Taste is of herbal and vegetal hops with a slight malt presence. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good IPA but the vegetal hop aromas and flavors aren't my cup of tea.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Darker amber color with a thick beige two finger head with good retention and leaving laces.
Somewhat malty aroma with notes of bread, mild grapefruit and grass, and caramels. I was expecting it to be more intense and citrusy.
Flavor with predominant notes of caramel malt, lots of spices and herbal and earthy hops, pineapple foam from juice, citrusy more toward peel rather than fruit, pine and tea leaves. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium towards full body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 8% is well hidden.
A bitter IPA on a maltier body, this felt more of a DIPA to me. I hope had more of the citrus character of their APA, which is a reference to me. That said it is still well crafted.
