3.68/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep orange-ish amber. Maybe a half an inch of white foam.

Smells abundantly of pine. Hmm... could use more citrus.

Taste is a bit astringent/bitter, with pine taking the fore, a splash of grapefruit, and a strange biting, acrid aftertaste. Not sure what that it is, but it is offputting.

Good mouthfeel. Just okay.

Poured a copperish orange color with good carbonation and a small white head. Nose is big grapefruit, sweetness and pine. Taste is big grapefruit, sweetness, sugary pine w/ caramel malt and ittering all the way through. Mouthfeel is sweet, coating and the ABV is sharp. Taste like a mini me of Hip Hop IIPA
