16oz draft pour.

A: Ruby / orange color that is cloudy. Low carbonation and thin, soapy head with slight lacing.

S: Sticky, resinous pine and grapefruit.

T: Dank, earthy, grassy, leathery dryness and bitterness. Then slight grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and biscuit sweetness. Enough relief provided from malt and citrus that taste is not too bitter.

M: Creamy with some bite, more bitter finish, and warm on the throat.

O: Great flavor and scents. Impressed with mouthfeel as it manages to have bitter bite but it doesn't kill your tastebuds like many double ipas.

12 oz can. Pours glowing hazy golden amber with a small creamy off white head that goes to a thin fil and laces the glass.

The aroma is a bit subdued - sweet caramel malt and piney, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malts and fruit with a big piney resiny bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, more like an imperial red with to nutty caramel malts and big piney resiny hops.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

On tap at Linger and served in a snifter $7. Orange color and a filmy head. Aroma was quite nice, lots of sticky fruits, sort of raised my hopes. The flavor was a total let down, it was like dirty water with a hop cone somewhere at the bottom. I asked a friends opinion before I shared mine and the response was "it could be a lot cleaner". Yep, taste muddled, muddy, and dirty.
