Poured from a bottle into a pint absolutely crystal clear and golden orange with a full off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a sticky lace throughout. Faint nose of pine and citrus. Sharp and hoppy on the tongue but not a brutal hop-bomb. The spicy bite of pine resin is balanced beautifully by burnt caramel and grapefruit sweetness of the malt with a suggestion of bready yeast. Surprisingly thick on the tongue and a finish that trends towards sweet rather than sharp. Seems to be designed to be a huge IPA for the masses, the result is a nearly perfectly balanced hoppy beer that is extremely drinkable. Gives the other IPAs a run for their money and is priced well to boot.
