12fl oz bottle poured into my pint glass
Appearance is light orange with gold color mixed in. The pour produced a three inch slightly off white head. Good head retention with minimal lacing
Aroma consisted more of floral like hops then citrus ones. On the the citrus side it seemed pineapple was the more dominate with maybe hints of lemon? Floral like aromas were of an earthy smell of grass, hay?, grains, and slight pine
Taste upfront was of pine bitterness that follow throughout your sip. Herbal like qualities follow with caramel and cracker like malts. Dry bitter finish.
Medium Bodied with high carbonation
Overall this beer was a little one sided with straight up pine bitterness. If that is what you like then I recommend it but if you like more citrus side IPA's then I would not pick this up.
