12 oz. bottle from a 4-pack: deep, clear golden pour with a quickly receding white-head. There was a date stamped on the bottle indicating the ale was less than a month old.

This ale is exploding with fresh pine, resin and citrus aromas. My cat ran like a bat out of hell after she bravely smelled the bottle opening.

Being fresh, you really can enjoy all the subtleties of bittersweet tropical fruit flavors - the abrasive citrus and the gentler and sweeter marmalade and mango flavors. I am pleased that the piney flavors complement the bitterness and are not dominant.

Nice medium bodied ale with a zesty carbonation; the faint lingering bitterness on the palate eventually gives way to some malt in the aftertaste.

This ale is not very balanced, indeed, that is its strong point for an American IPA. Despite the aggressive bitterness and abrasiveness, this is a very quaffable ale. At 7.5 ABV maybe that is why it only comes in 4 packs.
