A - Holly crap this stuff is over carbonated! A medium pour gave me more than two inches of head that seems to fizz out rather quickly with little head. Big clumps of sediment means either its old or just unfiltered. Either way not good so far.
S - Smell is mild not getting much hops or malts. Smell if anything is just of an average English pale ale.
T+M - Man that carbonation makes it hard to drink! My first sip gave me strong unbalanced pure hop bitterness in all it's unforgiving glory. Very little sweet or crystal malts for balanced just bitter and drain cleaner harshness.

Overall it's a real shame since I love their imperial stout but they can't seem to make anything else that impresses me. Pity.

12 oz.

Pours a dark amber with a half inch of yellowish head, slow dissipation.

Smells of piney, floral hops and citrus with some mild caramel and bready malts.

Flavor of honey, grapefruit citrus, and piney hops. Some bready malts.

Medium body with a light tingly carbonation.

Solid IPA, nothing special, but very good and refreshing, would have this again.
