Thanks to beersndrums for this one!
12 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass at cellar temperature.
L – Pale amber color with a big 3-finger frothy, foamy, cream colored head. Awesome retention and some of the best actual lacing I have ever seen. By “actual” lacing, I mean it looks like real lace latticework. It’s really remarkable. Clear with a good amount of bubbles.
S – Faint aroma of grainy malt, musty yeast, and grapefruit, orange, and pine hops. It smells good but it’s way too subdued.
T – Starts off sweet with some grainy, caramel malt and progresses to citrus, grassy, earthy, and piney hops.
F – Medium-bodied, decent carbonation, a sticky and mouth-coating feel, and a bitter and dry finish. Earthy and piney hop flavors linger for a while.
O – This is a pretty good IPA. Not much that’s groundbreaking here, but it’s definitely tasty. I wish the aroma was a bit stronger but other than that, it’s pretty solid. Once again, another brewery introduction from beersndrums. Thanks so much for the opportunity to try this one, Jared!

Beer pours pale golden in color with a small head. Carbonation is okay. Beer is slightly hazy.
Aroma is of pine and spice. No malt aroma. No aroma from the yeast. The pine is very clean and green smelling.
Taste is bitter, hop bite lingers in the finish. No malt in the flavor and no yeast notes either. Finish is somewhat dry.
Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side.
No flaws in this beer, pine hops are okay. Nothing all that exciting. Although this beer does not have a lot going on it would make a great session beer. The hops are not too bitter and the beer is fairly light and crisp.
