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.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/24/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity of juicy citrus hop and moderate malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, lightly slick, and fairly crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt balance; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.0 A: Clear light orange color. One finger of frothy/creamy white head. Retention is lacking, but a half finger of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Floral hoppiness with elements of cat piss and herbalness. Malts are subdued, but pleasant. Grainy with caramel notes.

3.75 T: The taste in this isn't all that impressive, but it does drink so easy that that doesn't matter. Again floral hoppiness foremost. Some herbalness, cat piss, and woodiness. Grainy malts with caramel and a touch of breadiness.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.

3.75 D: Overall a very pleasant brew. Quite pleased with this.
