Poured into a Budweiser pint glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a copper color with a full inch of white head that stays a bit and eventually rests at 1/4 inch. Excellent webs of lacing are left as the glass empties.

S- The signature ST malt sweetness is apparent as well as a grassy, citrusy hop aroma. Grapefruit notes.

T- Sharp hop bite upfront that mellows with the sweet malt follow-up. The bitterness outlasts the malts and lingers on the palate a good while but retains balance enough to keep the alcohol beautifully well-hidden.

M- Moist initially with a drying finish. Medium-high carbonation. A bit of an alcohol snap when I swish.

O- Although it could use more oak flavor, it's a very nice variation on Unearthly

Pours a bright hazy orangish amber with half an inch of dense, thick, off white head that has great retention. The nose is sweet, bready, biscuity with faint citrusy hop aromas. The flavor is heavy malt up front with notes of birthday cake and bread followed by some pineapple notes and finishes with a mildly citrusy, bitter hop character. It has a medium to full body that is very smooth and well carbonated.

This is an awesome beer. For an IPA it's definitely on the malty side but the hops are there and their solid. This is good but there is, in my opinion, little difference from the original.
