A really smooth ipa. Well balanced. Could easily crush a sixer, which could be dangerous. (Alcohol hidden well.) Surprised it took me so long to try it.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Gold with a 1/2 finger of white head. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pine, dank greens, grapefruit zest, papaya, and honey.

Taste
Dank greens and sappy pine. Lighter notes of grapefruit zest and papaya. Light caramel and honey backing with residual candy sugars and hints of biscuit.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, smooth, and oily with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Extremely smooth, mellow, and easy drinking. A lot of dankness with a balanced bitterness.

Dark gold with a tall tan colored head.

BIG pine scent! Like being hit in the nose with a pine 2X4.

Flavor is savory at first. An all conifer tree flavored IPA but in a good way.

Good mouthfeel.

Overall a damn solid IPA, I can recommend this one.
