Had in tap at pizza by stout
A-very deep amber with almost a slight red hue. Head is about 2 finger and nice and fluffy leaving a sticky lace down the side.
S-very piney hops come out in the forefront nice bitter and earthy. Very classic ipa. Grapefruit and bitter citrus come out with a deep smell.
T-again very classic ipa flavors nice bitter hops and earthy undertones. Citrus is very present in the middle and finish and leaves that wonderful bitterness on the palate. Hops are done so well it's astounding there is a subtle sweetness that balances the hops. It's really amazing as you continue to drink it.
M&D- mouth is a little thin but the carbonation is right on. It cones across as very normal at first but as u drink it you start to realize the very subtle complexities that come out. Very smooth and easy to drink for me but I'm not sure it would be good for a starter to the style. This brewery is becoming on of my favorites and I'm very glad we have access to it now
Serving type: on-tap

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
