750ml bottle split between two pint glasses. Bottled on date was 1/28/2013.

Pours clear, amber-yellow, with a pretty big white head, and lots of apparent carbonation. Smell is unbelievably muted, almost no aroma. I get a faint whiff of pine, and that's about it.

Taste is interesting. Malt seems to take a much larger portion of the attention than I expected. Sweet, a little bready, straw, but with some clear lemon-rind bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pleasant. Overall, this is an upper mid range beer, I think.

A: poured from a 750 ml bottle into a pint glass, orange amber colored with a large white head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: a very sweet malt smell with a floral hop presence, grass, pine

T: sweet caramel malt mixed with grassy hops, well balanced and not over the top

M: full bodied, high carbonation, alcohol present

O: the minute series is better, good balance but conservative flavor wise

AleBorland83 was kind enough to bring this up to Brooklyn for my birthday straight from the source in Delaware. We opened it in early August and poured it into two tulip glasses. It poured an amber/orange color with a thick head. The beer smelt exactly like a typical IPA, not that that is a bad thing. Some floral notes but mostly citruses like lemon and even lime. The taste unfortunately was average. It was like a flavor was missing. Decent, almost like a different version on 60 Min but with a creamy taste. Some malt backbone I guess.
Overall, I was wanting to love this beer from two great breweries but the beer was extremely tame. Decent, but expensive.

Very heavy beer with an orangish look to it. Very good retention with a lot left over on the sides after beer is gone.

Almost tastes a little skunky, not very IPA-y at all. The malt is too overpowering and I prefer a much crisper taste. It drinks much more like a belgian than an IPA.
