4.18/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Fireworks Pizza in Arlington.

Pours a dark copper, cloudy beer with full egg-white head. Great looking beer! Sticky lacing resides all the way through the glass as I imbibe the fluid.

Aroma has a pungent hop character with some notes of damp earth, citrus, and tropical fruit. It seems to be a nice blend of hops with a bit more English character than West Coast. The malt body displays a toasty quality similar to DFH IPAs.

Like in the smell, there is a toasty malt quality but the beer finishes very dry and strongly bitter eliminating any chance of a dominating sweetness that would inhibit hop flavor. On that subject, this beer truly shows off the resiny quality of hops. It is the dominating feature, but with an adequate balance of malt.

Good medium-low carbonation helps this beer show off the resin. Dry, bitter finish allow for continued quaffing.

This beer exhibits incredible balance of malt and hops.

Serving type: on-tap

4.31/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Purchased from the packey best by 05092015.

A: cloudy yellow with a thin ring of bubbles, that lacing hangs around forever.

S: Middle roasted malts, spicy resinous pine needles with bitter citrus. Mild peppery yeast and everything just blends well. Very well presented IPA notes.

T: Follows nose. The mild weediness, pine and citrus peek up and stay up. bitter-orangy-grapefruity finish.

M: Semi-creamy, coating well with a smooth, velvety finish. Some signficant bitter notes poke up and subside in the dry, creamy finish. It is a HUGE finish on the dry and bitter side.

O: Give me more of THIS. Between citrus, bitter, dry, and pine....this is a balance on the edge of too much. But it is not.

Serving type: can
