Pours a light gold color with a white head. The smell is pungent and hoppy, malt sweetness also factoring in. In the taste, toffee like malts and some earthy, bitter hops. Has the weakness of a NA beer with a bit of hops. Sessionable, but so is water if that's your prerogative . Tastes like a watered down ipa also sporting a watery body. There are some citrus notes and soft grain, but honestly thin and watery. Why bother.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 07/24/14. Sampled on May 18, 2014.

The pour is a light to medium copper-amber with a lasting white head. A little cloudy.

The aroma has a decent enough pine and floral hop character with a modest malt balance.

The mouthfeel is about medium and the texture seems chewy.

The taste is a pretty straight forward hopped up IPA with some amber malty notes. The hops leave a lingering bitterness.

A: Dark copper with light haze. Mostly white head that left a thin full cover over the top layer. Medium carb.

S: Pine. Light woodiness. More pine. Pretty straightforward.

T: Juicy and not terribly overpowering up front. Big strong pine resin flavor follows that up. A little bright green grass taste, but mostly pine resin. Again, not much depth, but still good.

M: Thin, light and refreshing. A little woody green grass aftertaste, but it dies off quickly with only a little lingering dryness.

O: Nothing amazing, but not bad. Not sure what to say here, not much depth, but some good bright hop flavors.

Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells of mildly of NW style hops and biscuit malt scents. Woody scents and a faint pine scent.

Starts out dry and slightly bitter. Light malt and stronger hops. Light strong tea, wood and pine flavor. Taste stronger than it smells.

Mouthfeel is OK.

An OK IPA.
