12 oz. bottle courtesy of Kala1073. Thanks a bunch man!
A- Pours a nice cloudy orange with a solid 2-3 finger creamy white head.
S- Fairly well-balanced in aroma, with a nice pine-scented hop smell with come candied citrus peel and a nice malt backbone.
T- Not so hop-forward in the flavor, with a buttery maltiness peeking through pretty strongly. The hops do come through in a piney, citrusy flavor, but with little bitterness.
M/D- Creamy and nicely carbonated. Very drinkable and well-balanced, though a bit high in ABV to call sessionable.
Very nice IPA, much more well-balanced than its brother Sculpin, though probably not quite as good. Still very nice beer.

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
