A - Amber w/ some sediment. Awesome ivory head that lasted and clung.

S - 25%/75% Citrus/Pine. Nice.

T - Pretty fantastic. 50%/50% Citrus/Pine. Only a little malt coming through. Long linger is spot on.

M - Nice and creamy. Ends with nice drying bitterness.

O - Fresh and tasty. I'll be looking for this next year.

Poured a nice orange amber color with good carbonation and a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is definitely piney with some spice scents. Flavor profile mimics the scent and is fairly well balanced for an IPA. This one does not overpower the hops but they are certainly there. Very nice IPA from someone who is not a big fan of the style.

Had this for the first time on tap last night, which was New Years. I don't really remember it too well since I had my fair share of drinks. It was pretty good, but not as good as I was hyped up to believe.

It was pretty dark for an IPA and kind of one dimensional. I was expecting more than just one hop character. Overall, not too bad, definitely a nice and bitter thick IPA.
