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.

Pours a very hazy blend of some combination of amber, orange, and gold. The smell is mostly pine with a faint hint of something floral and citrusy. I get a smooth, very full mouthfeel along with a huge bite of intense piney bitterness. The pine carries into the aftertaste. Bitter and piney are the two words to describe this beer, and you will love it or hate it depending on how you feel about those two words.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy orange body with a thick ring of white and a few bubbles trailing up the sides.

S- The green woody hops lead to some herbal hop aromas and a pineapple weed hint in the finish.

T- Nice malt sweetness is soon covered by a full green herbal flavor with some slight pungent hop finish. A slight sweetness in the finish leads to a slight bitterness with some unripe fruit hops.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- Nice full delicious hops flavor with a good malt sweetness to support it. The bitterness is gentle enough to make this quite drinkable by the pint.

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold, good head.

Smell: Juicy citrus rind, hint of herbal.

Taste: Dry citrus bitterness, moderate to heavy bitterness. Starts to give a hint of garlic/herbal flavor.

Overall: An interesting take on the IPA from O'so. The garlic/herbal flavor starts to come through but stays in the background where it gives a nice counterpoint to the citrus bitterness. I normally don't like the hop that gives the garlic/onion flavor, but here it works.
