Thanks Eric for this one!
12 oz. bottle dated Jan 13 2012.

It pours a deep saturated orange tone into a tulip glass. A fingers width of white foam rises and slowly settles, leaving a wispy island of skim in the center, and a denser collar of lacing that forms webs down the opposite sides of the glass.

Smells nice and resiny, some herbal pine and hefty malt presence. Seems a bit subdued however.

Resiny hop bitterness in the taste, lingering long into the finish. Leafy green, pine and herbals, some pale malt in the middle. Fairly rough hewn and straightforward. Medium body and carbonation levels. Overall a good IPA, sort of middle of the road.


Served In: Tulip

Received this brew from illeatyourkids not to far back. I’ve had 5 of the 6 he sent and they are A-Okay. Drank from my Stone India Pale Ale flute glass.

Appearance- Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish orange with a huge two finger creamy off-white head that has some serious staying power. A great cap and collar remains the entire beer along with a plenty of thin wispy lacing.
Smell- Tons of maltiness in the nose as it’s lightly sweet and full of caramel. A fruity candy like sweetness from the hops blending with the malt is really intense. Maybe a touch of pineapple and grapefruit make up the majority of the hoppiness.
Taste- Starts with a quick bite of alcohol before a light bit of fruity bitterness kicks in. Maybe a touch of candied orange peel and toffee as the beer is curious mix of bitter and sweet. Some red licorice and cotton candy finishes things off as a light bitterness lingers.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body that bordlines on syrupy with light carbonation.
Drinkability- Overall still not bad. It might have lost a bit over the past couple weeks but still tasty. I reminds me of a cross between Flower Power and Furious. I really hate the mouthfeel on this beer though. It reminds me of an extract homebrew. All and all pretty decent though, thanks!
