A: Poured a deep orange very close to amber. One finger white head that sticks around just long enough.

S: Great pine and citrus aroma. Maybe even a little tropical fruit.

T: Again wonderful flavors of pine and citrus. Basically what you would expect from a bigger version of Dale's, but not boozy at all. You can still get a very slight malt sweetness from this hop forward beer.

M: A nice body without being feeling too heavy or overly offensive. A very dangerously drinkable beer. Doesn't linger around long at all.

O: What you would expect for a beer that basically increases the abv and hops of an already outstanding beer. Essentially Dale's Pale Ale on steroids. Abslolutely delicious.

Don't let the can fool you - this is a quality beer.
Pours a copper/caramel color with creamy, lacy head. It seems to have more of a malt flavor than most IPAs. The hops are pungent but not bitter. I wish I knew what kind of hops they used so that I could look for other beers with the same.

On cask at the Waterfront, Brooklyn.

Poured a murky medium copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft cascade hop and a tough of caramel.

The taste consisted of an upfront spicy hop backed by a moderate doughy malt.

The mouthfeel was full and smooth on cask.

Overall a tasty hopped up ale. Nice on cask.
