Poured from a 750ml bottle (batch 8303), after a lengthy battle to remove the cork, into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in trade from hwwty4. Thank you very much!
A - Poured a dark amber color with a huge cream colored head about 3 fingers high. Head has great staying power, and finally give up leaving thick, sticky lacing all down the sides of the glass.
S - Huge, citrusy hop aroma - lemon and oranges mainly - mixes with piney aromas as well. Small amount of caramel malt comes through adding some sweetness to the aromas.
T - Hops are prominant here. Big hit of hop bitterness anchors the flavor profile. Piney hop flavor is right up front with a touch of spiciness too. Contrary to the aroma - not much citrusy flavor appears. Dark, slightly burnt caramel maltiness comes thru as well and is topped off with mild yeastiness and some alcohol flavor too.
M - Mouthfeel is full - thick and chewy. Carbonation level is high - fills the mouth with a slightly creamy yet prickly feeling.
D - A very nice IPA - a little on the heavy side to be as drinkable as some of the best out there. Drinks more like a Double IPA. Goes down smoothly, but the heaviness keeps it from being a multiple bottle beer. One 750ml makes for a very good night tho on its own.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours red amber with white head. Smells of citrus hops nice welcome. Tastes of citrus with very nice sweet malt, but still enough hop bite that it dominates. Beer is medium bodied slightly heavily carbonated. Overall a very good beer.
