12oz bottle poured into a Russian River stemmed snifter today, 7/12/2013. Thanks to Benish.
Aroma: Very piney, citrusy notes. Perhaps orange. Has a nice, seemingly sticky caramel sweetness that hangs in the nose. Very strong and pleasing nose.
Colour: Pours a hazy dark copper body with a 1cm white head that leaves a sticky lacing as the beer disappears down my gullet. Retention is solid, nothing special.
Flavour: Hoppy as hell. Very bitter pine complemented by a little bit of orange, nectarine flavour supplemented with a strong bit of caramel sweetness. It's a bit of a one-dimensional beer but this is what the name of the beer advertises.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, resinous and almost sticky. Aftertaste is a stinging piney bitterness that lingers quite a while and gets spread all over as I move my tongue around my mouth. Carbonation is good. Drinkable, slight hint of heat.
Overall: A very bitter piney IPA. Not the best IPA, but it is a very good one that is sure to satisfy any hophead's lupulin cravings. Very bitter and piney if that's up your alley.
