12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks to 67couple for this.

A: Dark copper/amber color. Very clear. One and a half finger slightly yellow tinted white head, thick, with awesome retention and great lacing.

S: Not a big aroma from this one. Mostly sweet caramel malts. Some toffee. A super light pine scent.

T: Very malty. Lots of caramel and toffee. A hint of floral hop bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Very creamy. Light carbonation.

O: Pretty much a malt bomb. Looking at the label I'm 3 weeks over the "Enjoy By" date. 7-14-11. Guess I need to get this one fresh and give it another try.

A: Slightly hazed orange copper color with a tan head.

S: Piney and citrus hops with a slight sweet malt backbone. Mostly the hops up front.

T: Hops up front. The piney spicy hop bitterness hits the tongue first. Earthy hops a bit later. Hard to detect the malt in background with the overwhelming hop attack. Fairly one sided. I prefer a more balanced IPA.

M/D: Medium body and carbonation. A bit to unbalanced hops make this one hard to drink multiple at a time, but good IPA when you want full on hops.
