I got this from a mixed Hoppy Holiday 12pck from Meijer's. It poured a clear copper with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent is faint juicy fruit. The taste is nicely balanced between sweet maple malt and bitter hop that may leave pine hint on the back end.....with hints of alcohol. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours without much of a head. Small white head. No collar. Just some surface wisps.

Smell - Musty. Lots of caramel malt. A little grapefruit.

Taste - Better, but tastes kinda old. Lots of sweet caramel malt. Grapefruit. Grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Sweet. Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Not sure about the age on this.

Outstanding double IPA. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Very smooth. Great orange color and head. My favorite Shorts IPA.

Appearance: dark orange, hazy, off white finger of frothy head.

Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, citrus, some pine resins, grapefruit.

Taste: caramel sweetness, citrus, pine, pineapple, strong booze.

Mouthfeel: full body, sticky.

Overall: nice, but a little boozy and sweet, and lacks the hop balance.
