12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Best if enjoyed by 02/13/13. Thanks for the extra sommersb.
A - Pours a vibrant orange body with one finger of off white foam. Great lacing and retention.
S - Grapefruit and some pine followed by a solid caramel malt backbone.
T - Similar to the nose. Grapefruit ad piney hops followed by a very sweet malt backbone. Basic, simple, tasty, to the point.
M - Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Highly drinkable with a nice lasting bitterness. Very clean and refreshing.
O - Probably a bit old at this point, but still a very solid and highly drinkable IPA. Proves the point that a hoppy beer should have a solid malt base to hold up to a bit of age.

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
