12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - a nice coppery color. Lacing was light, white, a a touch foamy.

S - classic ipa. Citruis, grapefruit, little grass in there.

T - really nice hop/malt balance. The sweetness is there but kept at bay, and you get tht nice bite from the hops but its not unpleasantly piney like a new Sierra Nevada Pale is

M - best part of this beer. Substantial without getting heavy, piney, or syrupy. Finishes amazingly clean. Definitely easy to session this beer.

O - a great example of an American IPA. I got this as a single in a craft beer six pack mix and plan on looking for more of it.

Poured into a pint glass.

A - Dark amber color, two finger foam white head. Great lacing. It felt as if it stayed on the glass for ages

S - The aroma of hops almost knocked me back. Great smelling beer. Very hoppy smell with a hint of malt towards the end. I got a lot of pine smell out of it with a little bit of citrus. Very piney smell overall.

T- Excellent taste, bitter and quite sweet. Signs of malt but again, the presence of pine was overwhelming. Fantastic finish as well.

M - A little bubbly and medium body I would say. Not extremely heavy.

O - Wonderful beer. Honestly, I was blown away. This is one of the best IPA's I have had the pleasure of trying. Will definitely get this beer again.

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.
