Always looking for the next great local IPA. I've heard good things, anticipation high here.
Pours a nice light gold, clear. Looks IPA-ish. Nice carbonation.
Smells are all hops.. Pretty strong. Floral pine, grapefruit rind. West coasty. More perfumey and pine sol than I prefer, but overall pretty good.
Very perfumey on the palate. Fake pine, like pine sol perfume. If pine sol marketed a perfume, packaged it in a 22oz. dark bottle with a green boot sticker, and you poured it into your pint glass, it would taste like this. This effect worsens as you move through the bomber.
No resin at all, needed some chewiness in the body to showcase the hops. Disappears right away on the palate..
I didn't finish the last 1/3. Too light and perfumey, tired of it rather quickly.
I've had this beer several times, each time I'm less impressed. I like their Furious clone, Rainmaker. I dont' like this.

A - The pour revealed a mostly white, some slight yellow, head that rose to about a finger before falling fairly quick. Body is clear and a nice wheat/orange color. I feel like the body is lacking something, like it is watery.
S - One of the stronger and more complex aromas from an IPA I have smelled. Good pine/hop notes, fairly woody, and only the slightest lime rind.
T - It's a very harsh hop profile that tastes a lot like lime rind and lemon seeds. Not a whole lot here.
M - Gets you in the back of your mouth, but not in a good way. Good carbonation, but body is a bit lacking.
O - I feel this beer is all about the hugely bitter hops, which isn't always a good thing. You can use a lot of hops and still have balance, which, as the bottle says, this does not. I drank this as soon as I received it, but unfortunately I don't know the origin, so it may be a little old.

The beer comes in a rich golden orange color.
The aroma has slight grass, pine, a bit of grapefruit, almost a smokey note from the grain.
The flavor is better of bright floral, lavender, and piney hops. The finish is of sharp spicy and piney bitterness. Still, lacking in flavor and strong bitterness throughout.
No bottle date, but this is probably an old bottle.

pour is transparent light orange with a tight off white head and big lace. The nose offers a sweet malt base and assertive resinous hop aroma. Sticky orange peel with a touch of musk. The taste is heavily balance with a sticky caramel malt, piney resinous hop, and faint citrus. Strong bitterness in the finish that only lingers for a moment. Highly carbonated, prickly finish and syrupy body. Don't know how fresh but tastes a touch stale.
