Thanks to buzze40 for a couple cans of this! Canned November 11, 2012, into a tulip.

Deep amber red, off white head with good retention and some lace. Nose has a ton of citrus, grapefruit and orange is prominent. Some piney as well, malt is sweet and noticeable but the hops are juicy and dominant. Taste has great hop character, some tropical fruits, grassy and herbal hops before some sweet malt provides a bit of support. Long bitter finish, some oily character on the palate, alcohol is minimal. An excellent flagship IPA.

Thanks to maximum12 for extra-ing a four pack of this!

A: Poured into an imperial pint glass from the can, produces a solid 1/2" head receding in about a minute to a thin coating of foam on top of the beer with promising lacing. The beer itself is a ruddy amber, slightly hazy.

S: Predominately piney with a little citrus and sweetness. Maybe it's the glass, but this is the big disappointment of this beer. Not that it smells bad, but it doesn't stand out in this area.

T: Starts out moderately sweet, but finishes up with a strong bitterness. More pine, some grapefruit, and cracker malt.

M: Medium carbonation, medium body, mild astringency, long linger

O: Very nice IPA, just wish the aroma was more pronounced. Might come back and revisit this with a tulip in a couple days.
