Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear, dark golden with a rich finger length head that dissipates into a cap. A lot of visible carbonation and mild lacing left behind. Nose is incredibly piney, with lots of spice and lemon zest very much there. Hops are also the story on the tongue, from start to finish. Light toasty malts are detected in the middle, but bitterness is the story with this bad boy. If you can handle big bitterness, this is very easy to drink and goes down clean, but I can't imagine anyone being able to drink more than 2 or 3 if that is the goal.

Overall: Piney IPA done well. If you like piney IPAs, check this one out.

Pours dark amber, slightly hazy with 3 finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is excellent. Deep citrus aroma with slight piney hoppiness. Nice malty taste, quickly followed by a piney hop burst, ending in a smooth citrus taste with a nice bitter aftertaste. Slightly soapy. This is a great IPA!!
