12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- a crystal clear amber with ruby highlights. A small semi-dense white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves nice lacing on the glass.

S- note of a sweet biscuity base with citric notes of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and papaya or passionfruit possibly.

T- the sweet malt bill starts things off, but is quickly balanced by the hop bill. The hops follow the smell and really blend nicely with the syrupy sweetness of the malts. On the end is an almost pilsner like malt taste and bitterness which really throws a complex note on this one. The tastes really have definitive transitions from sweet, to hops, to pilsner like bitterness.

M- Slightly slick, and fairly dry on the end, I really like creamy mouthfeels on imperial ipa's/ambers/red ales, and this one really doesn't have it.

O- a very, very good beer. While it doesn't rise to the level of the Hopslams of the world (for me at least) it's very good, and one that everyone should try.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
