Pours a hazy, golden/copper color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, yeast, sweet malt, slight alcohol, strong pine. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. There is also a strong bitterness. Tastes of resin-y hops, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, slight alcohol, hint of earthy malt, and strong pine. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma that is subtle but complex, but the body is not well blended.

A - Cloudy golden orange, with robust off-white head, resolving to a thin band with extensive lacing.

S - Full nose of hops, tilting toward citrus and pine. More wild hop notes (garlic, onion, cat urine) appear as hints, but the main lines are fruit and resin.

T - Sweet malt coupling with strong hops. The taste is less citrus, more pine and grass, playing against a malt line that offers notes of dust and sugar. Close runs straight into bitterness, which builds slowly as you drink.

M - Good carbonation, but bitter drying and resin do build over time.

O - A good, bitter IPA, with a nice malt balance. This is not an ultra clean version, and the fruit is coupled with earthier tones, making for an interesting, and ultimately rewarding, brew.
