12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with a very thin white head that quickly dissipates into a thin ring around the top of the beer. Just a few random spots of lacing.
The aroma is probably the best thing about this beer. Very piny and resiny with a bit of dank thrown in. Some orange notes in the form of overripe fruit.
The orange is more prominent in the taste with quite a bit of dankness and pine resin. A touch on the sweet side but bitterness is very high to help balance that out. There is a slight woody note that becomes more prominent as the beer warms and is quite nice.
Overall, a really good IIPA but I would stop short of saying it is amazing. My bottle is over three months old so I really would like to try this fresh. The hops have lost some of their luster.
