3.8/5 rDev -11%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip (bottled on 6/5/13)
A: A nice copper color with minimal head.
S: Nice blending of pine and citrus, like a mellow Pine-Sol. More citrus than pine here. Quite interesting and noticeably different for an IPA.
T: Balance. I always use pine as a flavor but this one is different in that it has pine/forest nuances, like you notice the needles and what not. I get almost no citrus, it is just pine and even that isn't super strong, it just is the flavor. Solid, even pine throughout, that continues into the aftertaste. The carbonation didn't help either, it gave it this weird texture with the flavor.
M: Even carbonation that isn't too noticeable, just a hint of crispness.
O: I was expecting a lot more since everybody is always comparing IPAs to this and they say it is one of the best. It is good but it almost seems too balanced, like I wish that there was something that jumped out at me flavor-wise. I don't what it is, but it just seems quite plain for an IPA. I love IPAs, but it was almost a chore to finish this one.

A - Thick white two finger head. No lacing really. Crystal clear amber color. Light carbonation bubble. All sediment was at bottom of bottle so second pour was cloudy.
S - Sweet tropical fruits. Passion fruit, orange, grapefruit.
T - A malty front followed by a citrus orange peel taste with some sweetness. Finishes off with a hoppy bitterness.
M - Medium thickness, and some alcohol and carbonation burn.
O - Sweet smell and the slight sweet taste does not disappoint. Pretty enjoyable.
