Canned on 1/20/2014. Aged mostly due to me not getting to it very quickly.
Very clear with a strong hop aroma with a mix of hop oil, citrus and pine all in a bold presentation and a strong shot of malt. Crystal clear copper and big off-white head with a rocky settling.
Bold flavors too with a more balanced hop malt goings on. Hop oil is pushing it to almost DIPA levels and distaste but backs off before hits it. Firm moderate shot of bitterness lingers nicely on a longish finish. Not quite as distinct hop flavors with a more mashed mixed, but still good.
Solid moderate feel and bubbled up right.
Big enough to drink a tad slower and bold enough to help that happen. Good but not great. Probably a bit better as a winter beer.

A: Copper filtered with a moderate amount of carbonation, 2 fingers of very light beige tinted white head.

S: Pine, orange marmalade, grapefruit, a little malt, red pepper heat, chives.

T: Orange candy, pine sol, malty yeasty aftertaste, a musty quality, an earthy quality, a fair amount of bitterness, onion, chives, garlic. Mushrooms.

M: Medium bready body, medium high carbonation.

O: Very well done IPA. Definite deviant nature, and yet middle ground enough to be drunken repeatedly. Drank in Indian Land, SC, July 9th, 2013.
