Pours a clear reddish orange. Smells of pine spice and rye. Tastes of spicy pine, heavy malt presence, some citrus and bready. Pine resin and malty aftertaste. Med/light body with med carbonation.

Poured into a chalice pint glass, color is copper, head is bright white

Smell is nice and bitter, not harsh, clean and crisp malt bill

Taste is similar to the smell, crisp and bitter, grapefruit and pine blended well; malt is clean, not too sweet, clean fermentation and nice flavor.

Mouthfeel is crisp, bitter, strong presence on the tongue

Overall, a very solid IPA, Starr Hill's beers appear to have improved in the past 12 months.

Significantly better than their Northern Lights. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
