Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a medium off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong sweetness from flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering piney hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid 2IPA to drink for a while.

Orange-amber color with a solid haze. The head pours a finger thick, but it lasts a very long time and leaves plenty of blanketing lace on the glass.

Strong caramel base in the nose. Definite alcohol presence. The hop, though, is quite muted for the style.

The taste is the whole package--solid malt bass mirroring the aroma. The shows up dramatically in the swallow with lots of black pepper. The aftertaste is well-blended with a warming alcohol background. Full bodied with a diminished carbonation level.

Bright amber with a hazy center, topped by four fingers of level,tight micro-bubbles. Good lacing.

Aroma heavy with pine, licorice, sugary, boozy.

Big sweet slather coats the tongue. Bitterness rises up, balances, then swings the tide. Fruit rides on top of the bitterness. Bitter finish.

Heavy mouthfeel, thick and smooth.

Worth a try, but unless moved by local loyalty, not a beer to return to often.
