Received as an extra.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear honey hue with some thin head that faded to leave light wisps.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, faint earthy hops. Caramel, sweet malts meh
T - Taste is malt bomb, caramel, cardboard, bitter. Really mediocre, just a bitter beer, nothing special here.
M - Mouthfeel is really not bad for the beer. Crisper, alcohol hidden.
O - Overall this beer, like most shorts beers, was awful.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pours without much of a head. Small white head. No collar. Just some surface wisps.
Smell - Musty. Lots of caramel malt. A little grapefruit.
Taste - Better, but tastes kinda old. Lots of sweet caramel malt. Grapefruit. Grassy bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Sweet. Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - Not sure about the age on this.

Appearance: dark orange, hazy, off white finger of frothy head.
Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, citrus, some pine resins, grapefruit.
Taste: caramel sweetness, citrus, pine, pineapple, strong booze.
Mouthfeel: full body, sticky.
Overall: nice, but a little boozy and sweet, and lacks the hop balance.

Poured into an IPA glass. Liquid is a clear amber, with lots of carbonation, but very little head - just a small off-white cap on top of the beer. The cap leaves a surprising amount of lace on the glass.
Aroma is resiny hops and caramel malts. Kind of like a hop-infused caramel syrup. A little bit of a floral note in there too.
Taste follows the nose - bigtime resin and caramel. Finish is moderately bitter, and the afertaste is grapefruity citrus & evergreen.
Mouthfeel is relatively thick, with lots of carbonation.
Overall, not my favorite flavor profile for an IPA, but it's good for what it is. I find a lot of DIPA's with the resiny caramel thing going on to be kind of sickly sweet, and this one avoids that with the minty evergreen on the finish. Glad I got to try it, so thanks to niner99 for the bottle!
