A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper in color with some orange highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall off white head that slowly reduces to a small medium thick patch with a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pine/resin hops with a light amount of citrus/orange rind hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate amounts of caramel malt sweetness followed by a moderate to strong flavor of pine/resin hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with some very light dryness in the finish.

O: This is a relatively easy to drink with there being not too much bitterness and is somewhat enjoyable but nothing amazing.

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away and also left lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of citrus and pine resin hops in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a light to moderate amount of hop bitterness along with some notes of caramel from the underlying malts. Flavors of pine resin stand out towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is relatively easy to drink and isn't too bitter. There seems to be a nice balance between the malts and hops.

A - Dark copper with a nice fluffy white head and nice lace. Slightly hazy.

S - Floral hops, tangerine and orange juice.

T - Slightly sweet at first, moving towards citrus on the back end. Nice malt support for the tangy hops.

M - Medium bodied, solid on the tongue. Finishes a little to bitter .... almost acrid.

This is a really nice IPA, I like the canned package. Easier to recycle and pack into and out of a campsite.

A: Clear amber color and a light coating of white froth.

S: Fruity orange and guava aroma with juicy grapefruit and light honey malt.

T: Not as juicy as the nose. More of the pine and resiny bitterness. Some sour grapefruit and light orange. Some warming alcohol which is unusual for the ABV listed. Finishes with lingering bitterness.

M: Mouthfeel is medium carbonation with some alcohol bite which is not well hidden.

O: I recall this as being much better the first few times I tried it. Didn't get to check the freshness date before my wife took the can out to recycle. Maybe a bit dated sample. I will re-review this again.

Son of a bitch! I didn't even get it open it and I find a "best by October 9,2012" on the bottom! Means its at least a couple months old...

A - Pours a hazy amber brown (unfiltered like) with a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head. Seems to have some decent lacing.

S - Smell is fair enough with a dose of subdued pine and citrus hops. At this point it smells more malt forward.

T - I get some bittering pine and a touch of metal at the finish. The flavors are mostly sweet malt pity since this beer had promise.

M - Light to medium easy to finish despite age.

Overall I am kind of pissed at Vintage Estate (Ohio) for keeping this beer over a month beyond it's best buy date. It's sometimes good since I got a 2010 Arcadia Barley wine and Imperial Stout. Might try this again fresh and see if it changed my opinion.
