I had this ale off the tap at McGrath's Pub in Harrisburg, PA.
A= Yellow golden in color and slightly syrupy legs. It has a white lacy head with moderately good retention.
S= Mixture of citrus and pine hop aromas greet the nose. Sweet subtle malt comes through the hops.
T= First I tasted the strongly citrus bittering hops followed by the pine notes and then I was able to distinguish the malt characteristics. Pale and caramel malts intertwine with the hop acidity to give this beer a balanced profile. Alcohol was prevalent but not overwhelming. This beer has a lasting finish.
M= Malty, chewy and heavy on the tongue. Not a turn off though.
D= A good ale to enjoy one glass at a time. This seems like any other IPA, but be warned that the gravity of this big beer can sneak up on you in a hurry.
Serving type: on-tap

From notes, 7/11/11. Nelson IIPA version. Appearance is fine. Mildly cloudy, bright orange. A dissipating head that stuck around for awhile as a thin film of bubbles. The aroma is grassy with tropical fruits - more kiwi/papaya than pineapple, like some hops. A bit grapey, too. Not quite strong enough for my taste but pretty good. On the palate, it starts out with some hop resin flavor with an alright crystal malt backbone, but the finish mars things with a big booze note that goes particularly poorly with the grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is, well, hot. Plus, the beer is a bit sticky. Didn’t much like this one, despite the hop choice.
