Sticky head on this relatively hazy beer. Lacing looks like bubbly sticky countries on a map. Light gold beer with a finger head. Name says it all - resinous, sticky beer on the tongue with a pine, earthy, dank undertone. A little dry on the back of the tongue, great taste though. Moderately high bitterness, really enjoyable beer. I like the can shape - really ergonomic design. A great imperial IPA, true to its roots. I see it's now 13~ years old. Cheers to that!

Pour is yellow-gold, thin, and about 75% translucent. Smell is piney resinous, taste is as well, and a bit sour. Over 100 IBU and the only place it seems to hit hard is the roof of your mouth. It is bitter in an exemplary kind of way, close but not quite overwhelming, but a fine example of what bitterness is/can be.

It pours a golden color leaving the same color body and mostly clear. There is a fair amount of carbonation which is seen rising. There is a one inch foamy white head. The lacing spider webs my chalice. The smell is hoppy and malty at the same time, piney and earthy, really nicely done. The taste is bittersweet between the malts and the hops, a spectacular taste on the tongue. It is about a medium on the palate with some slight sharpness a bit here and there on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I would come back to.

Had a snifter at World of Beer Hilton Head Island, SC for $6.00.

Beer was served a cloudy golden orange with a decent white head.

Nose was wonderful, dank and citrus overwhelmed the senses.

Taste was grapefruit and pine forward over a good size malt base, very dank!

Mouthfeel was really well done, so light and delicate a body for the size of the beer!

Overall I was very impressed with this beer, definitely worth having if you see it on tap!
