3.26/5 rDev -13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Orange color with accents of brown. Light head on the pour and slightly present while drinking. Low to medium active carbonation in glass. Some random lacing.
Smell: Subtle aroma. Accents of caramel malt are picked up first. The hop presence is a heavier resin and pine body. Some fruitiness but gets buried underneath the heavy pine and malt.
Taste: The front is a spicy pine hops and medium bodied malt with accents of caramel, oak, and resin. That resinous feeling doesn't let up and is very present throughout the beer. Mild fruits with grapefruit and tangerines round out this brew.
Mouthfeel: Really heavy on the palate with the resinous hops. Carbonation is low which contributes to the lingering bitterness.
Overall: A pretty okay IPA. If you are a fan of heavy piney IPAs this would be right up your alley. Execution is a little off, I feel like the bitterness is off balance and goes too hard.

3.9/5 rDev +3.2%

Randomly ran into this at the Wild game, and was impressed. . Always looking for good local IPAs. Unsure how fresh this store bought bottle is (damnit). But I don't think this was released all that long ago, and it was in the fridge at the store.
Pours light orange, darker than most IPAs. Carbonation is fine.
Smells are piney/grassy. Some carmel malts too. But definitely has the IPA aromas.
Tastes are bright and bitter pine, citrus in the back. not a lot of malt, but enough to support the hops. I liked it more than I expected to, and there are more hops here than I figured there would be. .
Pleasantly surprised. They hopped this one up nicely.
Needs to be dated, however. If I could pick up a 6 pack of this and know the freshness, I'd buy it at a bottle shop once and a while.
