Can at Sweetwater. Clear copper pour with a white head. Nice malt and resin hop bouquet. Tasty with a hugest backbone (I’m questioning the age of the can) with a pleasant pine/resin hop note. Good body and mouthfeel. Another solid canned beer from OB.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(16 oz. can from Toft Vin; Canned on 03/06/2014 @ 14:53) Pours a clear amber with medium, creamy white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is nicely hopped although the most potent aroma has likely withered away due to the three months of age on this beer. The hoppy aroma has herbal notes as well as more earthy, piney, leafy notes and a bit of resin. Oily texture, soft carbonation, strong malty backbone with a bit of rocket fuel and a finish that is long, bittersweet and warming. Flavour is rocket fuel but still somewhat elegant with some alcohol present amidst all the bitterness and counterbalancing sweetness.

16 oz. can. Pours a slightly hazy orange/copper color with a thick off-white head. Heavy pine hop aroma with some malt in the background. Thick mouthfeel with some high hop notes and some warming alcohol in the taste. Finish is slightly dry and the pine is following. Great beer!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-24-12 -
Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass
Appearance – Pours an orange – copper color with a very slow to form but dense head with a just slightly off white color. The head has wonderful retention but eventually fades leaving a good amount of lacing.
Smell – A good level of hop aroma is present and most pertinent. The hop aromas are biggest of pine, but there are citrus and earthy notes of hop as well. Behind all the hop aroma is a sweeter caramel and citrus as well as malt aroma, bringing a balance to all the hop.
Taste – The flavor starts out as smooth malt with a light caramel sweetness. The hops soon enter and rid the brew of the sweetness. The hop flavors start out almost entirely of pine, but are soon met with other hop flavors as well. Some citrus hop enters more to the middle to the end. At the very end of the taste, an earthy and grassy hop flavor mix with the rest and bring the taste to the end. These flavors that enter in the end are rather intense and leave a lingering bitterness on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite nice and creamy. The carbonation level is light with it seeming to be held into the brew by the thickness of the body. Overall the beer coats, but yet tingles ever so slightly on the tongue creating a nice mouthfeel.
Overall – A pretty good IPA. It has a nice look, nose, and feel. While the majority of the taste is good, the bitterness left on the tongue at the end is not one I love (although some may enjoy the particular bitter).

This is a good IPA and very good considering how much hops and alcohol were pumped into it. Still, its thick on the tongue and the hops have an astringency to them.
