Pours a very clear deep golden color with about a half inch of white head. Lots of visible carbonation. Unfortunately i'm drinking this only about 2 weeks before the best by date so hopefully that doesnt ruin too much for me. Sweet sugary malts on the nose with some juicy hops as well. Not as pungent as expected but the nose smells good anyway.

Extremely clean and crisp with lots of carbonation. Good deal of hop bitterness but not overbearing which is good. Piney juicy and fruity with a nice dry finish. Definitely a citric juiciness is present. The malts balance the abundance of hops pretty well and all the flavors are pretty nicely blended.

A well done IPA.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear deep gold color with no particulates and an almost white head.

Pepper and vegetal notes on the nose. With a sharp, green, dankness to it. Wondering if there's anything but hops in here!

Sweet, metallic taste on the uptake. Hops not as forward as in nose. Somewhat caramel tasting malt profile... this isn't nearly as hoppy of a taste as I expected.

Moderate carbonation with a crisp but somewhat sweet mouthfeel.

Overall an okay IPA but really disappointed in the lack of hops after the explosive nose on this one. Probably won't seek out.

I h ad this one on tap at Stonewood restaurant/Bar in Jacksonville. It was served in a standard pint and the beer is bronze with a dense off-white head.

I liked the big aroma of pine cones.

The beer is nicely bitter but with good balance. Lots of caramel malt evens out the big pine notes.

The mouth is pleasantly oily with a real coating quality.

I thought this one was well executed and would gladly reach for it again.
