Poured into a Thirsty Monk snifter. Bottleneck says 08/26/16.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of bubbly surface foam.

S- Earthy, piney hop nose with a bit of a booze fume.

T- Assertive bitterness right off the bat with resinous piney qualities in the hop flavor. There's also a decent amount of complementary malt sweetness. Also notes of grapefruit peel.

M- Very sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- This is one aggressive IPA. Overall, pretty good but it's taking me a bit to finish the six-pack.

12 fl. oz bottle
Served in an oversized stemless wine glass

This beer is a hazy amber color with golden highlights. It is topped with an inch of off white head that leaves little lacing.

It has a dank, earthy aroma with some cat piss.

The taste is dank, earthy, metallic and bitter. The bitterness overwhelms my palate after half a glass.

Medium mouthfeel

I had heard good things about this beer and was excited to purchase it. The taste and smell just does not agree with my palate. I like juicy IPAs rather than the traditional west coast bitter ones. It kind of reminds me of Ruination by how the bitterness is destroying my palate.

12 oz bottle - 4/20/15 etched onto the neck of the bottle.

Pours light amber, Off white mini head, leaves a tiny bubble film,thin collar and a bit of fine slippery sheeting. Final pour is quite clouded with nutty sediment tastiness.

Pine hop nose, with some tropical fruits make their presence known.

Dry and well hopped brew, lots of pine, grapefruit, pineapple and loads of hoppy goodness. Delicious IPA, biscuity malts add to the complexity and overall enjoyment of this one. Becoming a big fan of shorts....gonna try to get some more of this one before leaving the state.

Hazy gold pour. Nice head and nice lacing. Smells of pine and grapefruit. Taste is of grapefruit with some pine resin. Bitter and dry. This is a tasty brew

Poured from bottle to tulip. Had the pleasure of having this one when it was a part of the variety pack last year, glad to see Short's offering some of them as sixers (Chocolate Wheat, please!)
Nice hazy yellow-orange color with a thick, rocky head, which after some time settles to a swirly cap that leaves rings of sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet and sugary grapefruit, and the taste follows with some pine/resin notes an a bite on the back end.
