22 oz. bottle tried 14 Feb 2010. Gift from K&J, thanks!

Poured in a Twisted Pine shaker pint. Medium sized off white head. Moderate carbonation. Clear orange color. Aroma is fragrant, juicy, orangey, some resin, orange juice, pith and zest. Starts sweet, quickly becoming peppery and then pithy bitter. Sweet sticky finish with a lot of lingering bitter orange peel. Finish is warming with ethanol. Aftertaste is citric and long lasting. Medium body.

Send us more K!

A: Clear yellow-brown pour with at least 3 fingers of white head. The head laces a ton while receding and lasts a really long while.

S: Really piney and citrus aroma with a nice malty base. The dry, piney hops really shine through here. I think I'm getting a touch of booze, but nothing out of the ordinary. This has a really nice balance, and an inviting aroma overall.

T: The balance continues through the taste. A really nice piney, bitter taste combatted by the caramel maltiness. It has the hops of a big West Coast IPA, but makes it work with some malt balance as well. Really impressed.

MF: Medium body with a nice amount of carbonation. The sweet and bitter feud in the taste makes it quite drinkable.

O: I really liked this. Typically when I taste a ton of malt in an IPA I'm wondering what went wrong, but this is nothing but tasty. Do yourself a favor and try it!

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, unknown bottle date. This pours a light golden color, light for a iipa, with a massive off white head which leaves a lacing. The smells are of pine and caramel. The feel is medium, taste is pretty good, a decent amount of bitterness and a sweet caramel backbone. Not bad.

Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Smell is orange rind and malt. Taste is peppery spicy up front, with a dry malt middle and a piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, low carbonation. Drinkability is good, it gets a bit strong after awhile though with the 22oz bottle. I would definately get this again though.

Apperance: Translucent orange hue. Excellent foam. Looks almost perfect in the goblet at the Santa Fe Tap Room.

Smell: Strong yet subtle grapefruit with some heavy yeast notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: A delicious IPA. Spiced grapefruit and a thick, almost hef-like mouthfeel. Excellent crispness as well. Near-perfect, if not so.

Overall Drinkability: One of the best IPAs.

A - The beer pours a little over a finger of slightly orange/off-white head. The bubbles are good size in the middle and tiny on the sides. Head sticks around for a while. The body on this thing is super cloudy and mostly orange. Some brown in there as well. Strong lacing.

S - Smells pretty amazing. Some citra hops, malty backbone, and floral notes. Really a pretty typical DIPA aroma, but it is done very well and quite nice.

T - Again pretty typical. Good hop characters to balance out strong all around flavors. The finish is a little harsh and bitter. Pine, malt, and bread.

M - The feel is nice on the tongue. Good carbonation and body. Just a little mouth puckering bitterness.

O - Quite nice and everything you expect out of a DIPA. Could be a little more smooth on the flavors.

Something on the bottle says 4 23 10.

Poured into my trusty tulip glass. Nice white head on this one with a slightly hazy copper colored body. I like the way this one looks.

The smell is very nice. Lots of tropical fruit flavor on this one and sweet candy. Yum.

No wall of hops here, but the bitterness is solid in the start. The finish gives a little sweetness. I'm thinking orange tic-tacsesque. Not bad.

I could use a little more carbonation on this one and I imagine this could be an extraordinary brew when fresh.

Poured from undated bomber to pint glass the beer pours a perfectly clear light honey color with a lot of active bubbles, a 1 finger white head, with good retention and gobs of lacing. The nose is hop forward with a resiny pine character, a hint of citrus sweetness, a malty background. Good. No alcohol detected. The flavor follows with a strong coat on the palette that lingers for a long while. Thick and chewy. The hop isn't as dominant as the nose let on, it hits with a resiny pine up front that quickly melts to a malty sweetness that lingers. Alcohol is more prevalent than the nose let on, but it's not too much. Medium bitter. Finishes chewy and thick. Well carbonated and medium bodied. Overall, this beer won't knock your socks off but it's not bad. I'd enjoy this more often if it continues to be available.

thanks to pjeagles for this one.

A-Pours hazy golden blond with an inch of foamy off white head. Leaves inconsistent rings of soapy lace.

S-A nice blend of piny and citric hops, pale sweet malts.

T/M-Chewy at first. Gets nice and dry mid-palate with a grainy, citric finish. Hop profile is fairly dry, with some grapefruit/fresh cut grass flavors. Hop forward, not terribly malty. Very well balanced and drinkable, considering the ABV. Could get into trouble with this one. Medium/full bodied with moderate, chewy carbonation.

O-Good stuff.
