Aroma: Fresh pine needles all the way. Bold and up front. Lemon zest notes as well. Smells like I'm walking though a pine forest. No esters and resiny, piney notes blast the nose.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber pour with a low white cap that fades and rings the glass.
Flavor: More of the same. Pine resin, slightly woody, a hint of mint and herbal flavors, along with a touch of bready malt that is understated but provides a quick balance point at the end. Finish is clean, bitter, and dry. Balance is decidedly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly oily, and a hint of astringency.
Overall impression: I love the dryness and the pine in this beer. I wouldn't want it all the time but it's a unique twist and one I'm glad to try. Would be a great Christmas beer to break out of all the spice bomb brown ales that flood the market. This is like Christmas tree in a glass! Worth a try.

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.
