COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fruity esters and generous dry-hopping give this 9% ABV ale the aroma of tropical fruit while a touch of English crystal malt provides the perfect backdrop for tangy hop flavors of tangerine and mango. We brewed 200 cases of this small-batch one hit wonder.

A-- Poured a dark, hazy, copper orange color. Looks ait sweet and syrupy in the glass. Half finger off white head that quickly went to film. Not much more when swirling. Low visual carbonation. S-- Lots of sweet Carmel in the nose. followed by tangerine and lime jello. Hops have reaally faded in the nose. Barley wine quality nose now. T-- Sweet Carmel, tangerine, faded grapefruit and lime cordial. Really the taste is closer to a barley wine now as well. M-- Get Pine and grapefruit in the back of the mouth. Faded but get the idea of what it was fresh. Tangerine and lime stand out in the front. Slightly sweet and syrupy. Low feel and low carbonation. O-- Not bad, but not great. Just get flashes of what it was. Kind of like a lesser hopslam crossed with the Laguintias barley wine. Solid tick though.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a fluffy white head. At this point, the beer is definitely sweet and has lost a fair amount of hop character. But, there is a really nice fruitiness, particularly pineapple and sweet citrus fruits. Mild pine and a fairly strong toffee aroma. The fruit character is strong on the palate as well and there is a really good pine flavor, but only a mild bitterness. Might even be a little floral/honey quality to it.

Bonused by a generous BA trader. The label on the can is a masterpiece unto itself. Rock on my piglet friend! Pours a dark golden brown with a slight off-white head. Taste is heavy sweet malt, slight bitterness, minor pine, and surprisingly some whiffs of citrus. While the hops have faded quite a bit there is still enough pine and slight bitterness to give some pep to the sweet malt. Still a nice beer in an amazing can.

12 oz. can shared at brew club 9/23/11. Thanks to Chuck. Pours a thin, short lived, white head, over a clear amber (SRM 8) body...nose is pine, citrus grapefruit peel....taste is sweet malts, toffee/caramel, pine, light citrus, pineapple...mouth feel medium, slightly chewy, sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation makes a foamy quality. This is a fairly typical I/DIPA. Unfortunately sweetness from the malt back bone was dominating, with a low hop presence and complexity. This in a can about 9 months old, so perhaps it was getting old. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7
