Clear, dark orange in body with white soapy head that stays. Aroma of oranges, grass, pine, honey, booze. Tastes of oranges, citrus candy, pine, honey, grass, booze, and bitterness. A bit slick in mouthfeel. Heavy bodied with active carbonation.

Very smooth, although 10% not much booziness at all, very dangerous. A delicious offering, highly recommended.. get some if you find it.

Navaja pours a dark amber orange, slightly murky with a well composed 1-finger light yellowish head with moderate retention and spotty lacing. The smell...it's hop forward with a bready malt, some melon sweetness and ripe tropical fruits with a hint of booze coming through. Doesn't drink as big as a 10% beer, with a good tropical fruit flavor of guava and mango with a bit of grapefruit and a sappy hop bitterness. A bit sticky on the finish with a touch of boozy heat.

16oz can into a pint glass. canned 2/7/18, so well past optimum here. Oh well, here goes.

Deep hazy, bordering on murky, apricot/orange body. Small bright white head leaving quite nice lacing.

There is an odd malty type aroma.

The expected malt bomb, given the age. Thing is, it's not unpleasant at all. A little sweet, and even a hint of bitterness toward the end. Also still some warmth mixed in from the abv.

Mouth bordering on full, finish sweetly malty with a slight bitter bite at the end.

Overall, maybe it's the Brit in me, but some of these old american IPA's/DIPA's actually end up with a nice English-style IPA balance. (Warning, some do not)

This pours from the can with a pleasing orange-tang glow. Sweet citrus on the nose, squeezed mandarin and tangerine. Drying finish, full bodied. Hides its strength. Tried it at six weeks from canning and still good.
