Poured from a can into a Pumking scooner.
A - pours a beautiful hue of medium orange. Very clear- bordering on brilliant. A two finger head that is sand in color builds with a fair amount of lasting power. Head is very fluffy.
S - a hop profile that is tropical with a Fruit Loops fruity profile is apparent. Spicy hops also present. Not as fragrant as I was expecting but I dont have a canning date.
T - follows the nose. Hoppy with spicy and fruity hops. The bitterness is pleasant (read clean and not coarse) and somewhat light on the tounge, but is firm on the ending with an almost piney profile. Some caramel comes though in the mid to late palate.
M - fairly dry.
D - fairly easy for me to drink. The IBU's aren't shredding your tounge and the bitterness is fairly clean. Pair this with a fairly dry bigger beer and you have easy consumption function!!
Overall, a nice beer I always enjoy. The visuals are spectacular on this one. I'm always confused what to call this. I think the DIPA listing Oskar Blues calls it is a stretch. I'm going with hoppy Imperial Amber, whether it fits or not :). Anyway, its always easy to drink with enough hops to keep me intersted without going overboard.

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, red brown colored with a large foamy offwhite head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear
S: heavy on hops, earth, pine, citrus , grapefruit, breast malt sweetness, tangy and mouth watering
T: pine bitterness up front, bitter at first with a lemon quality, sweetens to honey and slight raisin flavors, hint of heavy alcohols and esters
M: medium to full with good carbonation, slight alcohol presence
O: nice balance of bitter mixed with quite sweet maltiness
