Pours a thin head on a darker straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and grapefruit.
The taste is big pine, lemon and grapefruit bitter with great balance.
The texture is fairly soft with moderate carbonation
Enjoyable.

I got this bottle knowing it was bottled 7 months ago. The malt has taken over. I will review this beer again with a fresher date. Overall it could be worse. I get a slight orange juice feel, and taste.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a stemless wine glass.

a- transparent orange, almost has a pinkish hue to it, very soft. Thin head gone quick, oily. Spotty lace if at all.

s- sweet piny hop...soft alcoholic citrus.

t/m/o- fairly light bodied, but on the boozy side. Watery pine cone hop flavors. Not sure of the age on the bottle. Ok beer, but in a world of amazing IPAs and IIPAs why drink an ok one?
