Bottle shared by stillmatic2232, thanks man.

Pours a hazy golden orange, with a 2 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells line strong pine sap, some citrus, and a good amount of caramel malt.

The taste is similar. A grapefruit and pine bite hits the palate first- this IPA has a really nice hop bite to it. The malt is a bit more present than I would've expected- a bit toasty and caramelly. Really great taste here.

Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, lingering bitterness, low carbonation. This one is quite drinkable.

This one was completely off my radar. I always love trying beers I've never heard of, and this one was a good surprise.

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.

A. Good looking beer. Clear gold.

S. Just hops.

T. Hops are very present. Not getting a lot if fruity flavors.

M. A little sticky. Fairly dry.

O. Good beer. Not the best of its style but very very drinkable. Will definitely buy this one again.
