Can.

A: Moderate citrus, light pine and grassy hops, followed by an ample malt caramel sweetness

A: Copper color, slightly hazy with a thin white head that quickly forms a film across the glass with a thick ring around the glass and moderate lacing the glass.

T: Moderate citrus, light pine and resin hop flavors, followed by moderate caramel malt sweetness, followed by a moderate hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and hides its alcohol well.

O: Solid; this is big beer with lots of malt sweetness to off-set the citrus, piney hops. The beer drinks almost like an American Barleywine.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear orange color with a large off-white head. The aroma is pine and oranges. The taste is spiced oranges with some pine hops. A very nice beer.

If you like full-bodied beers with a well-balanced array of flavors, this IPA is definitely worth a try. Uinta used to produce this in a big bottle with a cork. Haven't seen those in a while, but I thought it tasted better out of the bigger bottle. Still really good though, one of my favorites.
