Had this on 2012-10-28 in Lititz, PA at the Bull's Head.

A - Mildly hazy sunset orange with a 1-finger, pillowy white head and moderate lacing.

S - Some pineapple, pine and vegetal hop buds. Light malt. Not as aromatic as when I had it from the bottle.

T - Pine, hop forward, light caramel malt, citrus flesh and red grapefruit juice. The pine and grapefruit hang in the aftertaste.

M - Light-medium body and medium-high carbonation. Smooth, moderately, resinous and prickly.

O - Not as powerful in the aroma or taste departments as I remember it from a fresh bottle. Who knows, perhaps my senses have been despoiled by a year of (IPA) living dangerously. For example, Fat Head's Head Hunter is stronger (and better) in the taste and aroma departments. I enjoyed it this time around but wasn't blown away. You'll have this.
