Served from a 12oz bottle, bottled on date: 10/06/11 (4 months old). Poured aggressively into a pint glass.
A: Looks a light golden, almost blonde ale color, very cloudy. Lots of active carbonation bubbles coming up. Finger of white head, good retention.
S: Very floral, hoppy, pine, citrus, very aromatic.
T: Whew! Definitely an IPA. This IPA style is not my cup of tea really... or glass of beer rather, but hopheads should love it. Lots and lots of pine, citrus, higher IBUs, very hop forward in the start through the mid palate. Tries to balance a tad on the finish with a bit of malts, finishes a bit sweet. Doesn't leave that bitter burning pinesol feeling in the back of my sinuses after a sip like some IPAs of this style do, so that's a plus. Also the slightly higher ABV is well masked, I don't get much booze in the flavor.
M: Medium body, slightly on the watery side, light carbonation.
D: Drinkability is hard to measure with this one because it's such a niche style. Your mileage may vary. For me, it's drinkable, but I'm not a huge fan of big IBUs and piney flavors.
O: Overall, I'm not a big fan. It's one of those styles where you either love it or hate it, and I'm rating it here for what it is, not according to my personal tastes. I know it's a good beer for those who are into the IPA style, and it deserves at least a 4/5. Love it or hate it, it is what it is, and there isn't anything "bad" about this beer, it just depends on the palate.

This pours a hazy orange-amber with a modest head. Aroma has pine-resin with a hint of citrus hop notes. Flavor offers high bitterness up front with piney, flowery hop flavor, together with some sticky sweet malt, lightly caramel, and a pleasant yeasty fruitiness. Finish is actually a little sweet while still retaining hop taste. Fairly light bodied for the strength, but also a tad watery.
