A - Light bronzish amber color... Completely translucent... Two fingers of rich white foam... Great lacing... A minimal amount of very slow paced carbonation... Great rings cling to the glass throughout the session...
S - No real surprises as citrus and hop scents are first and foremost... A complex hop profile is noticeable... Floral aromas come to the forefront next... Followed by very faint hints of malt and caramel... The aroma develops nicely...
T - A complex blend of hops... Tomahawk are the most noticeable... A twinge of citrus... Floral and earthy notes... A faint malty caramel backbone emerges... Perhaps even a hint of spiciness at the finish...
M - Insanely smooth, rich, and creamy at first... Minor carbonation noted on the tongue... Oily hop resins coat the mouth... Only a slight bitterness lingers as an aftertaste... Hides the 93 IBU perfectly... One of the easiest drinking beers that I've ever tried (dangerous considering the 7.5% ABV)...
D - Fantastic... Much more well balanced and enjoyable than most "hop bombs..." Excels in all areas and leaves one wanting more... A truly well crafted brew that all Beer Advocates should seek out and try...
Note - The beer is excellent cold, but even more stellar once warmed to closer to room temperature...

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.
