Really quite solid. Not as hop abrasive as something like, say, Sixpoint Resin, but along those lines. Feels a little thin, but the smell and taste sing IPA. I'd drink it again and again. Oh...and organic to boot!

22oz poured to tulip

Pours a hazy amber. 1 finger of head disappears immediately. Hop particles, I assume, left in the bottom of the bottle

Faint citrusy aroma

First note is kind of grassy, Rounds out with a full sweetness and orange and sugar cookie. Decent bitterness and some resiny pine hiding in the aftertaste

Seems a little slick on mouthfeel... more carbonation would help

Overall: I really wanted to love this beer, but none of the elements struck me as outstanding. Head / head retention is an issue for me, and the initial grassy hit in the flavor is overpowering
