A - I poured about a pint off of a growler purchased earlier that day at Green's Beverage Warehouse in Columbia, SC. Noticed a small head, almost non-existent. However, it was a nice amber, orange color.
S - For a double, the smell is not overwhelming, but you can smell the hops. I also smell strong caramel and vanilla notes.
T - Very tasty. Piney and earthy at first, caramel and vanilla in the middle and end. Not sure about the aftertaste left in my mouth. Might be just a bit too sweet with this vanilla taste.
M -Great mouthfeel for a double.
D - Overall, this is a drinkable double IPA. The 8.6% is hidden nicely with all the different tastes going on here.
The price is right. I will pick this up again, maybe in bottles.

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.
