This beer has a burnt orange color body, with a small, foamy head. The aroma has a piney notes. The taste is of piney hops and some malt. I also get some citrus also. The mouthfeel is well balanced and very drinkable. Overall this a really good ipa, wish I could it up here in Pa.

Enjoyed many times. This particular review is from s bottle version. Botting freshness date- 9-30-2013.

A- A bright orange, golden color brew that pours with much carbonation. Upon pouring, it appears to just attach to the glass. A one finger head with a small thin layer of bubbles sits a top.

S- A lot of citrus and pine on this nose. I'm noticing a lot of tropical notes as well as a hig crusty malt backbone. Very surprised by how "zesty" this beer smells.

T- Awesome blend of citrus, grassiness, and malt. A very heavy dose of pine. The hops are very lively with a lot of zest and crispness. It's quite surprising how easy drinking this IPA truly is until the glass is about half finished.

M- A medium bodied beer with a relatively thick level of carbonation. Large citrus punch that seems to almost attach to your tongue.

O- This is pretty damn tasty for $6.99 a six pack. I liked this one much more than I ever thought I would. The tropical hop notes and malt are very well balanced. This is an IPA I'll definitely select more often.
