yes. it's that good.

Just tapped at the local bar I work at here in Swannanoa, NC. Minus the insanely stupid tap handle we have (a double barrel shotgun), this beer is just amazing. Perfect orange hue, very bright finish and not overly bitter for an IPA. Easy to drink, and hard to quit. Kudos to Dark Horse for this gem of a beer.

I'm insulted the "pros" gave this an 89! Makes me really question the ratings here.

Anyways, this is by far my favorite beer and I've tried hundreds of craft beers. The smell is so amazing I cant even describe. In fact just try it for yourself. Great beer!!

Picked up in Detroit.

A: Orangish hue with about a finger of toffee color lacing with retaining head. Amazing.

S: Pine cones, needles, and trees. A wilderness smell.

T: Pines, earth, clean water, and alcohol. Exactly how I like my IPA

M: A creamy, full mouthfeel. This is a heavy IPA that still has a middling alcohol volume.

I am picky on IPA, but like a piney, and not overhopped, brew. This is as perfect a brew as I've seen at any price.

Nice lacing with a dark amber orange hue. Unique smell in which an orange comes to forefront. Quite balanced lacking a big hop taste. Can taste fruit more than hop. Not overly bitter. Quite smooth for an IPA. As I drink more a malty taste comes out, and fruitiness disappears. Overall a well balanced IPA, but not as good as I was expecting.
