Glad to finally try a beer from this brewery. I had this on at the Flying Saucer in Houston. The beer is bronze with an off-white head & decent lacing.

Just as expected, pinesap nose & lots of hops!

The taste is astringent and nicely bitter. Pine sap, grape fruit and some caramel malts. The malts actually do a good job of adding some balance and keep the hops from running way with the beer.

The mouth is oily and coating. I like this beer, but drinkabilty suffers a tiny bit from the lack of balance. Still, well worth seeking out and a nice example of a West Coast IPA.
