Poured into pint glass.

Appearance: Straw color, pours an inch of foamy white head that fades quickly.

Smell: Hoppy, pine resin, citrusy, biscuit malt.

Taste: Hoppy, pine resin, citrus, malty.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium bodied, good carbonation, creamy.

Overall: A decent IPA, tasted as though it may be a bit past its best by date. Not as hoppy as I like, but I tend to love big hop bombs.

Was in Visalia for my cousin's wedding, dipped into a corner market that was on a shithole website to check out the beer selection and grabbed this for $9/6. Pours a very dark appearance for an ipa, lots of brown rolling deep in this one. Plenty of carbonation yields a nice off white 1.34" deep head. Aroma picks up nicely, lots of pine aroma, makes you think you're tasting the redwoods almost. Mostly (Cartman voice).

Tastes like an ipa with a sticky tree in it. Lots of malt though, this one really pushes the boundaries of what a single ipa is, the seven and one half percent alcohol is there, but not bothersome, they paired up some heftier style malts and in good quantity that it makes that 7.5% warming and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel remains with strong Cascade hop character, this one is strongly hopped with the traditional hop varieties. This beer doesn't skimp on lack of ingredients, its big but not heavy. If they could pack that pine and everything into a slightly lighter body, I think this would be a very good beer instead of just good/pretty decent for a Visalia corner market.
