Can into Tulip

Appearance- Golden, some haze, good lacing

Aroma- Dense pine, herbal and earthy hop notes, some grapefruit and citrus as well, slight carame malt in the background.

Flavor- Lots of pine, citurs, very bitter but malt comes in at the end to balance it out, but very deep hop flavors dominate, slight alcohol.

Mouthfeel- Medium, good carbonation, slight alcohol warmth

Overall- An awesome double IPA that I'm glad I finally tried, will definately be getting more.

Fills a Blue Point snifter with a hazy, deep amber (SRM 12-13) beer while a thin, fluffy, white head quickly dissipates, leaving occasional fine lacing. The tall, thin, 12 oz. can makes for sleek packaging.

Simple, with strong, fresh pine and lots of orange aromas.

Grapefruit and pine lend nicely to the strong, bitter flavor that carries directly into a strong, long-lasting, bitter finish. What else could one expect from an IIPA?

The body is medium to full and a bit syrupy. Astringency is accentuated by the alcohol which is slightly less than anticipated. Medium carbonation with a sticky residue left on the lips and finishing dry.

This is a fresh sipping beer that lends itself to contemplation.

Beautifully smooth orange bubbly brew, with a solid 1 1/2 finger flat white head. Lively and thickly translucent - almost opaque. Pulpy. Lacing slides slowly down the glass, leaving thin lines; head retention is awesome.

Smells like the namesake: resin, hop oils, citrus, flowers, biscuit, and caramel malt. Complex aroma, but very smooth and restrained.

Bright and smooth; a fresh, not-unpleasantly-syrupy hoppiness. Bright and astringent, but very little citrus peel effect. Lemon, orange, pink grapefruit, pine - all balanced against a subtle dry biscuit and caramel malt background. Supremely hop-forward, but absolutely in a good way. Mild citrus peel fore- and after-taste. Brown sugar without sweetness; not particularly grainy.

Refreshing and lively, with minimal carbonation sting and some syrupy feel. Medium, almost medium-full.

This is a great DIPA: refreshing, hoppy, fruity, and fairly balanced. It might not rank up there with the absolute best, but it really isn't far behind.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Can is funny shaped. Never saw a tall, skinny 12oz can before. Best before 24 February 2014.

Pours clear with a slight coppery tint. Started out with a pretty, creamy looking head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is slightly muted, but piny and pretty, floral, lemony citrus.

Taste is refreshing, nice blend of hops and malt. I get lemon and lemon zest, pine, honey and chamomile sweetness, long bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light and this. Overall, this is a very good beer.
