Poured into a shaped pint glass from the growler. A nice off-white head appears, and has nice staying power, with good lacing left behind. Appears a pretty hazy, dark orange color. Looks great.

Nose is full of citrus, grassy notes and nice summery hops. The malts are fairly light, but there is a slight sweetness to the nose. Taste is very similar, starting out slightly sweet, then moving nice and bitter pretty quickly. Again, the citrus and grassy notes, and nice spicy flavors towards the end. The finish is pretty dry and bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with some stickiness left after each sip. Carbonation is just at the right level. Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA, but nothing that blew me away. Something I would grab again if I'm in the mood.

Thanks, Eric! An IPA with spruce - interesting.

The body is golden with slight haze, topped by an inch of sticky lasting foam that leaves rings behind as the glass empties.

Spruce is evident on the nose, right alongside citrusy, lemony, herbal hops. It's resinous, spicy, fruity, frankly a bit Christmas tree-like. Malt brings a dry, bready note that's largely buried.

The palate is odd but enjoyable. Plenty of spruce again, which is sharply resinous, spicy, and for lack of a better word, very "green". Hops lend more citrusy and herbal flavors, along with plenty of sticky, earthy bitterness. The malt backbone is heavier than I was expecting, though the beer is far from sweet - it's present more in the texture. The flavors are all enjoyable here in small doses, but it begins to wear down the palate after a few glasses. Overall this was a pleasantly surprising experiment, but I can't say that it left me wanting spruce in all of my IPAs.

Enjoyed this brew on tap at Jackie O’s brewpub in Athens Ohio out of a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a white head that slowly dissipates leaving a decent trail.

S: Hoppy aroma.

T: Similar to the smell there is a bitter hoppy aroma with a slight pine and citrus background.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Really good IPA – highly recommended.

Pours a hazy, pale golden color, with an amber hue. A slow stream of small, steady bubbles rise to a short, white head. The head falls to a dusting, that leaves spots, and arches of lacing.

I smell pine, wet dog /dog shampoo, sage, lemongrass, and hints of orange. I get some bread notes as well... The spicing / hopping take front stage, but actually has a nice blend of all its components. Pleasant, clean, and inviting my nose is constantly buried in my glass.

I wish I could tell you that its flavors were as balanced as its' aroma, but I can't. Its' resinous, herbal, and spicy. There is some fruitiness, but the rind comes with it. Not bad at all, don't get me wrong.

It is put together very nicely... Light to medium in body, with faint carbonation, and is slightly astringent.

An easy drinking IPA, but a few glasses are enough. It is pleasant to my senses, and provides a nice buzz; basically everything that I like in an American IPA. I have no idea how this beer is rated so low; it rivals any of those caned IPAs' from the east coast, and the rice IPAs' from just north of me.
