Thanks to blitz134 for the can. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Pours a sort of shimmering amber with a moderate head of off-white foam. Settles as a thin ring. Not a single bubble of carbonation can be found
Aroma: Citrusy hop stings your nose. Hints of sweet caramel.
Taste: Like Dale's on hop-steroids. Sweet caramel and grapefruit, with a stinging bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Super smooth. No malt stickyness, not too much drying for a beer with so much alcohol.
Drinkability: Definitely a highly drinkable beer. In my opinion, not too far off from Dale's. More hop character, though it would probably stand out more on tap (rather than in a can). Another great one from Oskar Blues.
Serving type: can

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
