4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh bottle, great hop aroma, mostly mild pine, moderate citrus, with some sweet. Great taste with perfect bitterness and hop balanced with delicious sweet malt. Awesome beer. Like a bells two hearted but more flavorful, sweet, and hoppy. Piney finish and after tasted.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a Sam Adams lager glass. Feb. 2012 date. (from 2011 notes).
This pours a light orange-amber, with a moderate but durable bone head. The head leaves a good bit of sticky lacing. The beer is slightly hazy, and there was some sediment left in the bottom of the ’emptied’ bottle. Visible carbonation all the way to the end.
The sweet citrus and herbal nose is very pleasant and very consistent with the flavor. The flavor is, of course, not sweet, but it is not very bitter either. There is a big, balancing malt component in this IPA.
Feel: good medium+ carbonation; near medium body.
O: a very drinkable IPA with a substantial sweet malt balance making this drink more like a pale ale. In fact, I’ve had pale ales that were more hoppy.

Quite interesting. BItter yes, but also creamy and somewhat sweet, probably due the fact it was high in alcohol abv.
