Holy pine forest batman!

A: The color was a dark amber with a nice foamy finger size head. Some retention, with nice lacing.

S: Excellent hop smell as soon as I popped the top. Once poured into a tulip glass the hop smell faded slightly and the malt presence became more pronounced.

T: As mentioned above, wow, what a blast of pine up front. Very resinous, and piney on the palate at first and then recedes into a nice malt backbone. A great mingling of bitter and sweet.

M: Bubbly on the mouthfeel, with a resin coating as it makes it way down.

O: Very nice IPA. Again, what hit me the most was how piney this IPA is. The malt at the end finishes it off perfectly. I would certainly buy this again.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Bright amber with a huge rocky white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Floral and grassy hops dominate with a little citrus and pine. Hints of caramel malt and grapefruit.

T - Juicy citrus and grapefruit combine with waves of grassy and piney hops. The hops lend a sharp mild bitterness that is balanced by a bready caramel malt backbone. Finishes earthy and grainy with a lingering breadiness.

M - Smooth, creamy, a bit sticky. Medium bodied, crisp and refreshing. Mild carbonation, dry finish.

O - A delicious, balanced IPA. Great hop presence throughout, with a strong malt backbone. This could easily become a go-to IPA for me. Alcohol is masked very well.

A - Pours a beautiful copper/caramel/orange with light orange on the edges. Nice inch and a half of rocky light tan head that shrinks moderately to a nice thin topper. Lace piles on down the tumbler.

S - Hop first nose smacks of floral goodness. Some caramel toasty malt as well but it's all about the hops on this one.

T - Nice juicy hops with various floral and herbal notes. Piney and resiny in the background. Malt underlies nicely with bread and caramel/toffee accents . Slightly bitter on the finish with a clean dry hop finish.

MF - Somewhere past medium bodied, nice carbonation, good finish.

A solid malt backbone with a great hop profile. Essentially a dry-hopped amber that does everything right.
