Pours a finger and half of tight head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma has pine needles and pineapple.
The taste starts with a sharp bitter note, rounded out by a good dose of malt and almost fruity sweetness and finishes with a long dry bitter note. Great profile.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Excellent.

Very attractive sudsy pour in the tall Maredsous goblet. Golden, orange tinted brew with a spritzy mouthfeel. Aroma is a little piney with a gardenia hint in the nose.

Big hops from start to finish. Plenty of bitterness. Toasty malt, a biscuity taste. The hops go through a shuffle of flavors, with the grilled mango and sweet tangerine being followed by the grapefruit peel. Very bitter finish. Not a bad IPA for sipping, but the pain versus pleasure ratio is somewhat lower than many.

From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington. On this newer packaging the label says 7.0 percent.

Very hazy orange with a two fingers of cream colored head that recedes rather soon leaving nice rings of lace.
Smell is mostly sweet malts. I can't pick out any hops aromas.
Taste is big time sweet malts with a light amount of hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation. Lightly bitter somewhat dry finish.
overall a middle of the road DIPA. Nothing bad about it just too many big competitors.
About 10 to 20% more hops would do it. With no date on the can I can't tell if the beer might be a bit old. If I see it on tap I will give it another try.
