Hazy rich amber. The good side of standard. Solid finger worth of big bubbles. Good lacing, decent retention.

Starts off a bit grassy and sweet like caramel, more malts : some earthy, some straw. Some spicy hops, nothing discernible. Reminds me more of the English style than the American, especially the big juicy west coast Americans.

Taste starts off with the same grassy mellow hops, some of the straw and sweet malts, but then suddenly turns punishingly bitter, in that sharply aspirin/pine sap sense.
The caramel sweet pops its head back in at the end to make sure we're doing ok, do we need anything? But quickly gives itself over completely to the earthy piney bitterness through the finish and aftertaste.
I'm surprised this one gets is as panned as it is. It's not a world beater, and the hop profile isn't my personal preference, but it feels well put together, and is certainly enjoyable, ESPECIALLY if you like punishingly bitter brews.

This beer is on the lighter side of the IPA scale, hazy golden, not much head.
The smell got me first, citrus in nature, but faded fairly quickly.
Taste is smoother than one would expect, crisp with a maltiness like an orange cream (subdued). The IBUs are hidden, but ruby grapefruit and tangerine, with some pine trying to push through.
The feel is one the weaker side, somewhat coating and twig-like woody.
Another beer I wouldn't turn away, but seems "weak" considering the 84 IBU. I like the citrus lean but want more pull at that bitterness rating.

Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is bright orange and mandarin smells.
The taste brings on a strong dry pine and lemon bitterness throughout and without let up.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Bring on the hops!
