I had a nice lengthy review on this one, but somehow the webpage booted me when I went to save it so hear goes the cliffs notes version,...

Good looking beer with nice camouflage like webbing. Clean and fresh hops in the nose. Nice hop / malt balance with a nice juicy hop presence.

Overall, I really enjoyed this brew and would definitely try it again. The flavor borders on a DIPA - lets call this a 1.5 IPA. (413 characters)

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale orange, gold, about 1 finger white head.

Smell - Pungent pine, resin, grapefruit and slight pineapple.

Taste - Flavor of pine, grapefruit, good balance between bitter and tart. Slight ground pepper spiciness. Light malts with a subtle roastiness, dried out piny bitterness at the end that lingers as the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall - Good beer. With this brewed year round you can't go wrong trying it. Lots of hoppy character that is sure to grab your attention right off the bat. (578 characters)
