This review is for a recent tasting on tap at Pinocchio's.

Clear amber pour with a full finger of frothy white head that retained well and laced the glass nicely. Nice aroma of fresh hops, pine and grapefruit, distant pale malt base. Crisp and juicy. The taste reflected the aroma, with a nice blast of fresh hops, oily citrus, resinous pine, light biscuity pale malts somewhere off in the distance, bringing in a sense of balance, but ensuring that the hop profile is still the dominant factor. Perhaps nothing you wouldn't expect, but nevertheless, this is pretty much exemplary of the style. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, super drinkable.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Unibroue tulip. Off white head, low to moderate retention. Clear lacing on a clear, light copper body. Aroma is dominated by intense, resinous, piney, grassy, hoppy goodness. Taste is biting and bitter, intensely hopped, I'm sure the malt backbone is in there somewhere. Totally out of balance and totally delicious. Delivers on the promises made on the label. Excellent.

Bottle into glass

A - Pours a clear straw color, with a moderate head that recedes to a ring around the edge. Really great lacing.

S - Pineapple, grapefruit, slightly stale white bread, and a little pine

T - Very citrus forward, great flavor that is balanced out with bread/malt and pine

M - Medium/heavy mouthfeel with low carbonation, a touch of creaminess in the finish

O - This is a great IPA, would drink it any day.
