16 oz can poured into a pint glass. A rich orange, the color of a Bengal tiger of course! Smells like an early morning hike through a Rocky Mountain pine forest - herbal piney resin and very fresh and crisp. This is a hoppy mother with white pepper spiciness yet balanced by just right maltiness. Resiny full mouth feel and a moderately dry finish. Excellent!

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a hazy, dark golden body. The foam settles fairly quickly and leaves light lace on the glass.

S - Sweaty hops and some caramel malt.

T - Spicy hope up front with notes of graperuit and lemon pith. Some caramel and red apple yeast character in the middle. Finishes with strong bitterness as well as more pine and sweaty hop character.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Nicely done, the aroma is a bit mild, but the flavor makes up for it with a pungent flavor and a well balanced finish.

A: thin head on a cloudy orange golden body. Nice lacing but its thin.

S: nicely aromatous with citrus, mostly orange peel, melon and grapefruit. the aroma is just the right amount of sweetness. floral notes. biggest issue is that its a little mild.

T: taste is a little unidimensional. the bitterness is just right. more of a well balanced IPA with a nice malt presence. fruits are mild, grassiness provides the bitterness.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: from the ranking I was expecting more. I nice IPA but a little uni-dimensional to great.

16oz can into a tulip glass. best before jan 29 2013 stamped on bottom.

a - pours a hazy amber shade with a sudsy, two finger, tan head on top. retention is good, calming to a thin cap of foam and lasting for the duration. leaves thick rings of sticky lace in the glass.

s - lightly toasted grain, faint pine, and faint grapefruit. has a soda like effervescence to it.

t - bready malt with an earthy/herbal hop presence. piney bitterness in the finish that doesn't linger.

m - fuller side of medium, adequate carbonation, medium co2 profile.

o - decent beer but nothing about it stands out to me. worth a try but don't go out of your way to get some.
