Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle with no date code into a pint glass and got a 1 1/2 fingers of off-white head.

A: Pours a golden color and looks like honey. There is a 1 1/2 finger head that dissipates somewhat but covers the top to the end. Beautiful and abundant sticky lace.

S: Smells like grapefruit and pine and some floral scents in the background.

T: Taste follows smell: grapefruit and pine.

M: I have a pine oil feeling in my mouth and tongue. Although it is smooth, it doesn't feel thick but a little thin. I also think it lacks in carbonation and that would make it more interesting and enjoyable.

O: This beer started off great but overall is disappointing. It tastes sweeter than I like and is not carbonated enough. It is also thin unlike IPAs that I enjoy more.

Big off white head slowly settles into a nice bisquity small head above a honey copper colored beer.

Pine, citrus and a slight floral aspect in a aroma that is on the lighter side.

a slight bitter edge to a pretty decent hops taste that combines citrus and pine quite well.

A dry aftertaste that holds a pine tree syrup likeness in this medium bodied IPA.

A nice hops taste without overdoing it, recommended.

Pours a dense and cloudy amber, with a thick and sudsy head. Nice. Lace is there, but unremarkable.

Nose is appealingly citrus-floral. Not outstanding, but definitely appealing.

Taste is sharp up front, but with a heavy malt foundation to smooth it all out. This is an easy-to-drink IPA that shouldn't offend non-IPA fans too much, but doesn't quite cut it in my book. Sessionable? I'd say yes, though, so score some points there, but I wouldn't recommend this one otherwise.
