Poured from a coupla bombers (@5.99 each), looks reddish with a one finger white collar. This has got a little bit of a lot of things but nothing jumps up and takes the lead. Some sticky resin, pine, average to good alcohol content, metallic, dry, and a bit creamy. Was just looking for more from the hops.

Draught. Deep copper pour with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of earthy hops, sweet malt and faint alcohol. Medium body, great lacing with a great hoppy yet smooth finish.

Mostly clear, copper amber color with a medium light beige head. Floral, fresh hop aroma. Nice bitter, but balanced, smooth flavor. Will look for this one every year.

Best by 01/13/2016.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a burnt amber color with a light transparency about it. A one finger white to off white foamy head started and dissipated within less than about a minute and a half. Lacing was fairly thick.
The smell had bitter and sweet pine. Bitter citrus starts to come out every so slyly as it warms.
The taste was mainly bitter pine with a light underscore bitter citrus. Sweetness trying to move in subtly. Dry piney aftertaste leads to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Sessionable sticky resinous pine clings to my tongue in a slight harsh way. Carbonation felt fine as an AIPA.
Overall, this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.

3/7/2008 2:44:55 PM Bottle from Bier Koning. Dark orange colour, fuzzy head. Hoppy and citrus nose. Very spicy and hoppy taste. Quite bitter. Some caramel in the taste. Really nice but almost too much bitterness that won’t go away.

This had some age but the piney hop aroma was still good. Average weight with a drop down in the carbonation. Color was a metallic gold. Strong harshness that was evenly balanced by caramel malts.

Bottle thanks to stephrocks shared at Anchorage Apr ’15 Tasting: Poured copper with a white head. Light aroma of hops and malt. Taste is more malty than hoppy, this might have been past it prime.
