12 oz bottle

Fairly typical IPA presentation,and leaves some nice fine high lacing.

Mildly hop fueled nose.

On the palate, its oranges, pine,and hop resins.

Citric/tropical/pine battle going on and I like it.

Better then decent AIPA.

Solid all around. Great nose, taste is the same. Tropical fruits, citrus, some zest, and a sutle dankness.

Nice clear orange in appearance, aroma was a mix of sweet candy like malts, lots of orange and citrus zest, pine and grass, which all really comes through in the flavor. Tons of orange in this, and some decent pine, some floral notes.
Very well done brew.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam.

S- Grassy, piney (surprise, surprise) hop aroma with some sweet malt backing.

T- Moderate bitterness and some leafy hop flavor plus a decent malt backbone. The hops end up being a bit generic and almost plastic-y. The malt sweetness does its best to try and maintain some character but ends up failing.

M- Lingering hop bite with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- I had high hopes for this one since the score was actually decent for a Twisted Pine beer...if you're on the fence about it, don't buy it. Much better IPAs out there.
