Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into an oversized wineglass. Best by 06/15/13 on label. Single purchased at a Minneapolis area bottle shop by my brother for $2.99.

A: Amber-honey with a light copper tinge topped with 1-finger of off-white foamy small-bubbled head which left minimal to no lacing.

S: Explosive resin and pine aromas are followed by peach, mango, and passionfruit. Grapefruit plays a role but I get this a much more piney and resiney. The maltiness is bready without much sweetness. Yeast character is nil.

T: The flavor is not quite as intense or complex as the nose but there is nothing wrong with it, but it doesn't really keep up with the big boys, as the resin is the most prominent hop flavor followed by pine and grapefruit/lemon. The mango and more tropical flavors fade into the secondary role but add layers. The maltiness is bready with just a mild amount of light-medium caramel character. The yeast character is none. The bitterness is high, higher than I expected, probably owing to the overly resiney quality of the hops flavor.

M: Smooth and well-carbonated, medium body, medium dry but I think could be a little drier.

O: A nice beer but not on a level that I would put with the likes of other reasonably available DIPAs like Ruination or Sculpin. Definitely worth a try though -- a nice beer with a great name.
