4.05/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: slightly hazy gold head was originally about. 1/4" coming off white settled to nada after a sip.

Smell: light floral, soft hoppy feel. It smells bitter but soft on the nostrils.

Taste: complex in the motion that you feel how bitter it can be but with a honey feel that you will absolutely love.

Mouth: Very good carbonation for this tyPe of IPA, exceptionally smooth and very hard to dislike.

Overall: you're missing out if you if you didn't have one shame on you. Salud!

Serving type: on-tap

3.58/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz can into a Russian River Belgian-style stemmed glass. Clear gold color with a big fluffy white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Didn't get much lacing as I drank it down.
Honey sweetness on the nose with oak and citrus fruit notes
Beer warmed quickly (since I'm sitting in a 90 degree apartment)
Very high bitterness, and not much masking of the alcohol right away. Both linger quite a while. Tasting the oak, honey, and citrus I was getting on the nose. Not much complexity, just pretty straightforward hoppy bitterness.
Average carbonation. Makes the sides and back of my tongue want to curl in.
I like this beer. Wouldn't call it a top tear Imperial IPA, but a very enjoyable beer.

can into a pint glass. Enjoy by 10/11/14.

Looking very nice after a somewhat agressive pour. Clear golden yellow with a thin white head. light carbonation, with some decent lacing.

Only getting a faint wiff of hops on the nose, and a syrupy sweetness.

A wash of bitterness throughout the mouth. Alcohol burn in the back of the throat (9.7). slightly syrupy sweetness, which cleansed out the bitterness. Was getting a touch of the wood on the front of the tongue. Not unpleasant....just overall not quite what I expected. Seemed unbalanced toward the malt end.

Mouth was a little above medium, due to the syrup.

One of those more difficult beers to review in that it was quite a pleasant slow drink over about an hour, just didn't seem to be the beer advertized on the can. Age not an issue as due by date is 3 months off. Would likely try again to see if this was just an of night or can.
