Picked up a growler from the brewery. Poured into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-brown coloring with a tall, chunky, foamy, clingy, off-white head. Great lacing along the glass. Aromas of resinous pine pitch, pepper spice, caramel, lemon zest, cut grass, and subtle grapefruit. Very balanced nose, with a slight lean towards bitter. Flavors are bitter and citrus tart forward, with a heavy dose of grapefruit and tangerine, all on a richly sweet caramel backbone. Cut grass, moss, and pine pitch provide a solid dose of hops resin characteristics, bittering up this beast. Smooth, slightly dry feel on a fairly light body, with a bitter, dry, and citrus tart aftertaste. The finish has more of the grapefruit linger, and leaves a dry, slightly astringent feel on the palate. Very solid, tasty, big IPA.

I really enjoyed this one. Definitely has hops but not overly dry.
