3.48/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This is certainly a pretty beer. Deep amber, opaque, minimal white head. No lacing.

The nose is... different than I had anticipated. There's some grapfruit hops, and something that I can't quite get my finger on. Wet.

This is a potently bitter beer. It's crisp, yet quite large. No balance, just damp vegetation.

Not a well balanced IPA. One that might appeal to those who just want a hop bomb, but it doesn't really do much for me. Even other high-hop/high-IBU brews I've had and enjoyed, they had some balance to them. I probably wouldn't drink it again.

4.31/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a perfect pint glass. 1/7

Pours medium amber, cloudy, some foam on top. Lots of lacing. Spiky pine citrus nose that bursts from the glass. Light sweet malt, subdued floral paired with a pine back.. All expertly balanced below the malt. Light and powerful. Excellent.

Had this on 2014-01-01 in Columbia, PA

A - Mostly opaque dirty orange with a 1/4-finger off-white head and moderate lacing.

S - Fresh red grapefruit, pine, hop cone floral. A nice potpourri of hop aromas. It's not real strong but it is very pleasant.

T - Nice burst of orange citrus flesh and zest up front, light but balancing bread and caramel malt flavor, flavorful leafy-vegetal/tobacco. Finishes at first like an alcohol-infused orange candy drop but this quickly yields to significant but not overpowering bitterness. These flavors really work for me.

M - Thick body and light carbonation. Syrupy (not cloying), resinous, lightly prickly, substantial, coats-the-mouth in a great way.

O - I really enjoyed this holiday-gifted beer. Very satisfying and a great way to say hello to 2014. This is my favorite so far from this brewery.
