I saw this in the beer cooler at the grocery store and bought it. I had honestly never even heard of this beer before buying it (beer noob). Pours a light copper color into my tulip glass. A nice thick, foamy head forms, settling into a thin ring around the glass. Smells of pine, citrus (pineapple, grapefruit) and hops. More of a pine aroma than anything else. Tastes rather citrusy and sweet. There is a definite hoppiness to it, as it is a double IPA, but the hops are not overdone. A nice bitterness comes through as well. It's a balanced taste. It's got a lighter mouthfeel than I expected. Leaves a fair amount of stickiness behind, but drinks pretty well. A very solid double IPA.

3.79/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: deep gold/pale amber ale - clear - topped with a full head of off-white foam; modest lace trails
S: muted aromas of citrus and tropical fruits; some caramel-esque sweetness
T: got some pine resin and grapefruit, toffee-sweet, earthy; not too bitter - rather moderate
M: decent carbonation, slick and smooth, medium weight, bittering close
O: decent, but didn't really catch my attention - seems like this "American strong ale" genre is rather amorphous - never know what you're gonna get - this had some DIPA characteristics, but was a little thinner in body, and even with all the hops involved, wasn't overpoweringly hoppy. An enjoyable ale, but lacking the allure to bring me back for another. Seeing as how my review is below the average, this may simply be a case of a style that, while broad, isn't (typically) to my particular tastes.
Saw two entries for this ale - hope I chose the right one.
