Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.

A: Pours a deep reddish orange. Light off white, slightly yellow head, which fades quickly. Light lacing remains throughout drinking.

S: Very light sweet scent, definitely getting pine and toffee, with a hint of citrus. Unfortunately, it's a very light scent, I'd like it to be more powerful upfront.

T: Malt and sweetness upfront, with the pine and citrus hoppy notes finishing it off. Love the mid/end notes, but the upfront sweetness is slightly too strong for me. Definitely balances a bit as it warms, which turns it from something I'd pass on in the future to a really good beer, but I'd like a little more balance.

M: Great carbonation and smooth throughout. Definitely drinks well.

O: I'm mixed. I want the flavor slightly more balanced, but then again, it's not a DIPA. It drinks like one, looks like one, and so I expect those characteristics. I definitely enjoy it. It's so close to a DIPA I find myself wishing it WAS one, but once I get past that, I really like it for what it is.

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.
