Cloudy pale yellow color, with white head that dissipates rapidly. When you put your nose down in the glass it literally slaps your face with its big citrus flavor. Lemon, lime, and grapefruit combined with a thick piney aroma. Taste is phenomenal. Absolutely one of the best IPAs I have ever had! Taste resembles the smell of balsam fir trees, and reminds me of... no,... not Christmas,... but shearing Christmas trees as a teenager. Mouthfeel is a lot like the nose over the top, slap you up, I AM an IPA. You will pucker up on this beer.

Overall, I would absolutely seek this beer out, because until you find something else like it, you won't find anything else like it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - hazy peach colored ale topped with a creamy off-white head
S - fruity aroma with plenty of toasted grain and bready malt; milder citrus and pine
T - actually sweet and malty up front with caramel, bread, and toasted grain; bitter pine and grapefruit follow and completely punish the palate with bitterness
M - medium-full body, resinous and drying, while the pine lingers on. Alcohol is a bit warming but not overly hot
O - nice, unique IPA. Definitely gives the palate a whoopin' with the hops, but there are nice flavors with a solid and present malt backbone here.
