3.38/5  rDev -12%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours an amber color with an off-white weak head. Some lacing persists.

Strong caramel malts with a burnt pine hopped undertone. An unusual combination.

A moderate bitter tasting hop blend -- pine, caramel, and a hint of wheat bread -- well balanced with an obvious malt backbone. An interesting combination but not altogether impressive.

mouthfeel - rather weak bodied, a bit watered down. No creamy aftertone - rather dry.

drinkability - alcohol and carbonation prevelant, otherwise fairly easy going down. The bitter burning pine taste that lingers actually makes me hesitate for a moment before I take another sip. I don't know if that is good or bad.

Overall imperssion: a slightly above average American IPA. I would choose several others over this beer, but if I were stuck with it, it would not be the end of the world. For tonight, I'll have another.

4.11/5  rDev +7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with white head with good retention and beautiful lacing properties. Aromas are wonderfully floral, tropical fruit stand-like, with a nice caramel underbelly. Tastes amazing. Starts out sweet and caramely, before piney and orange zesty hop notes dominate the mid-palate, and candied orange peel comes through on the finish. I like this a lot. What an excellent IPA.
