Hazy dark honey with loose white froth.
Sticky pine resin and flower nose - sickly sweet.
Clover honey on toast with juicy resiny, nectar, hops.
Apricot and pineapple salsa finish and compote linger.
Medium, chewy, bit of oil.

Sweet and old school - no citrus or melon. Almost cloying, could be cleaner. Busy. Fruitens as it warms, but still mushy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

pours out fairly orange in color with a two finger white head that has pretty good retention and some nice lacing.

Smell is more piny in nature, a little but of citrus but not much, and a little sweetness from the malt.

Taste is a mix of more prominent pine with a little bit of citrus just like the nose. The pine sticks all the way down the throat and is pretty dominant.

Mouthfeel is semi-thin. Definitely not anything thick

Overall this is a nice east coast IPA with forward piny hops with a tiny bitof citrus. Not a bad beer. Nothing to complain about. It's certainly not as good as Size 11 but that is a hard taste to replicate.

The beer is golden and transparent, with ample effervescence and an inch of white head that leaves a sheet if lacing in its wake. The aroma brings candied citrus, resinous hops. Juicy with a bold hop character. Palate coating with some pine resin stickiness. Pretty good.

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.
