A 355ml can with a BB of Dec 2012. Picked up recently from Trembling Madness in York. I like the label imagery - but what inspired it? Lip up fatty...
Poured into a Delirium chalice. A rich marmalade-orange hue with faint haze and good carbonation. Produces a decent head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer. Aroma of intensely juicy hop notes: grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, pine and faint tropical fruit hints. This is underpinned by subtle caramel malt and dry yeast. Slightly sweet. A warming and rather solventy note of alcohol in the background.
Tastes of overwhelming aromatic hops and caramel malt with a stinging bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, pine, caramel, earthy yeast and a hint of brown sugar. Faintly sweet. A seriously dry bitterness upon swallowing; spicy and astringent. Mouthfeel is smooth, spicy and tingly, with good body. Could be just a smidge thicker (but I'm splitting hairs). Dries the palate, and leaves a lingering aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and malt.
Superb - another quality American IPA. An avalanche of hops assault the senses, with the malt taking a back seat but providing good balance. My only minor complaint is that the aroma had a slightly estery/solventy quality - albeit very subtle. All said, a tasty and very drinkable IPA. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.

Love this beer and the can it comes in. No to harsh not to light, just right. The color is just right, the smell of hops is just right. It does at times have a after taste but that's probably me cause it's off and on. Overall I like it better than any English IPA
