Un nez intéressant d’ananas cuits, pin, tarte au citron, purée de mangue mais en bouche les malts sont têtus et une étrange verdure s’infiltre à travers les tons fruités.

Can... Clear golden pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet boasts pine, grapefruit and spicy hops. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. This is pretty damn bitter, tongue-numbing and sandpapery. Lingering, bitter aftertaste. Can courtesy of BVery!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Gotta say: I really like the copy on the can and I think it makes me like this beer more than I would otherwise. As it says, this is a great big IPA and it’s dry and super bitter. This style has always worked for me and I am always happy to try another. In this case, the beer is a slightly hazed orange color w/ a wispy white head of mixed-size bubbles. Nose is mostly citrus and pine but there is a faint note of lavender in the background which seems to come out more once the beer is tasted. There is a very slight sweetness to this, just a bit of sugar that floats over the top of the tongue to be demolished by a hefty smack of bitterness in the finish. As it warms, the texture thickens a bit and brings out some juicy citrus notes. Definitely, seeking this out is a no-brainer if you are into this kind of beer.

Pours a very hazy light copper-orange color with a lot of particles in suspension. The wispy thin white head laces the glass. Citrus aroma. The flavor is balanced with sweet malt, orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, and resinous notes. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can (dated 1/2/14) poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy light golden yellow with tiny bits of sediment and about a finger of off-white head. Good lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, resin, light tropical fruit, floral notes. Tasting notes of grapefruit citrus, bitter pine, resin, big bitter piney hops. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Had this before on 6/1/13 with a 5/8/13 dated can and my notes are pretty identical so it seems like the beer hasn’t fallen off too much after two months.
