A - hazy, dull, orange. Bright white head. Fades quickly, but leaves beautiful lacing.

S - Fruit, not citrusy, apple. Sweetness.

T - All about the hops. More citrus in the taste, grassy hops, strong bitterness. Not much detectable malt, but there must be something in there to offset the 103 IBU's. Can't detect any alcohol booziness.

M - Sticky resiness, duh...medium carbonation, which is definitely required to move this thickness along the palate.

O - Excellent beer. Almost sad to see it weighing in so heavy with the ABV. Stress almost. Worth seeking out.

Appearance is a hazy orange with a one finger white head.
Aroma is super pine with more malt than I like but not overwhelming.
Taste is pine, and balanced malt, just bitter enough.
Mouthfeel is actually great, not super dry but coats the mouth with a lingering bitterness that make you want another sip.
This beer is tricky, not the particular aroma and flavor I love in a ipa but the bitterness and mouthfeel make this experience enjoyable.
