4.15/5 rDev -1.9%
Appearance: Slightly cloudy gold color with a bronze hue. The beer has a modest-sized white head that slowly faded to a small head that stuck around.
Smell: Piney hop aromas feature prominently with some grassy and citrus notes.
Taste: The pine aromas an carry over and feature in the taste followed by the grassy and citrus notes. The beer finish fairly dry with the pine notes first followed by the grassy/hay notes.
Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation.
Overall: Good IPA that is not overly bitter but flavorful and nicely balanced.

3.8/5 rDev -10.2%
Pours a copper color with a sticky white head and plenty of lace. The aroma is quite hoppy filling the nostril with pine and citrus. The taste is piney and citrusy with a fair bitterness. Nice and drinkable, with a big pale malt body that leaves the beer balanced. Medium bodied, solid carbonation. Overall this is a very good ipa, with pine and citrus like hops.

4.19/5 rDev -0.9%
22oz bottle from j47paco (thanks man!). No bottling date. Served in my Phish snifter.
Pours a hazy orange with a finger and a half near white head. A thin layer remains throughout and deposits big sheets of lace.
Smells of orange, grapefruit and pine with just a hint of malt.
Taste follows the nose. Oranges, grapefruit, pine, grass, cracker and pepper.
Semi oily, medium body, fizzy carbonation. Piney, citrus zest and orange pulp linger in the finish.
The name may be a bit of an over sell but this is a solid, straight forward IPA. Or perhaps as far as the current rating scale is labeled- this is "just" outstanding, not quite worls class.
