Pours a dark amber. Minimal lacing. Thin cream head. Smells of alcohol and some pine notes with a slight citrus. Tastes really good. Ha ha more objectively, tastes of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and something else...ends bitter and alcoholic, but not so hoppy. Overall, a really good brew, unique too. Something i would recommend although slightly boozey.

12oz bottle poured into an oversized snifter - almost a mix between a snifter and a tulip glass. Best by: 5/02/13

A: Pours a ruby, light reddish color. Aggressive pour resulted in beige colored three finger head. Good retention and settles into a nice small ring. Great lacing on glass. Not fully translucent.

S: Citrus. Very floral. Some hop character, some malts.

T: Very bitter. Floral character matches the nose well. Very sweet malt tastes that minimize the hoppiness.

M: Creamy, sticky, low carbonation. Medium body

O: Meh. Not great, not bad. Glad I tried, but I probably wouldn't buy again.

Poured into a pint glass, this beer is a beautiful dark burnt orange color with deep copper hues emanating from its sides. Its topped off with w thick dense head and slowly turns into a billowy cloud of bubbles surrounded by a thick wall of lacing. Hops, spiced apples along with some orange and apricot dominate the aroma. Bitter overtones are accompanied by a strong, but good tasting hop presence. Plenty of spices and lemon zest are also detectable. The aftertaste it bitter at first but then warms up and a slight grapefruit flavors takes over.

A finger and half of head on a clear, amber colored body.
The aroma is a nice pine and lemon smell.
The taste is high lemon bitterness with a decent malt backbone. Solid bitterness.
The texture is quite soft with moderate carbonation.
A wonderful IPA.
