4.28/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Time to re-review as this has supposedly changed a lot since I first had it.

Pours a nice big creamy frothy almost 2 finger head, obviously Nate has really improved the head retention of his beers in the past couple years, but still that super murky hazy bright nectar orange color.

Nose is similar to what I had in my review before, mild piney spicy hops, light resin, hint citrus orange rind and a little tangerine like citrus, bit of orange rind, hint of sweet fluffy malt.

Taste starts with citrus hops, orange peel and orange creamscicle, not really the spicy hop profile anymore, into some resin and dank musty notes and into a mild piney slightly earthy forest floor note. The pine eventually comes out again, but not nearly like it was before. Fluffy slight creamy malt base adds a nice filler. Juicy overall and pretty tasty, with bitterness there but not rampant. The finish on the other hand really dries and bitter a bit more, with a bit of hop oil and resin lingering with more pine and hint of citrus, and a nice orange rind and orange creamscicle lingering. Late on the finish the pine and resin really start to come back through like the original as the citrus disappears.

Mouth med bodied, fluffy, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice. Def better than I had last time, less of that almost overbearing piney resin and more orange peel, orange creamscicle, with some rind, and a little piney forest floor like but not a lot. I really wonder if Nate changed this up on purpose since the first was way too much in the other direction and not that great of an IPA. It couldn't even hold a candle to the likes of Julius and Green, etc, but it was its own thing. Now it blends in a bit more to those other IPAs and probably loses it's own crowd. I def like it better now, but I'd still def enjoy Julius or Green more, and now it's lost it's own character. So good and bad for the change.

Fresh from the brewery last Friday.

Poured from the 25 oz. bomber into a stemmed tulip.

a: Cloudy orange with an inch and a half tall white head which receded to rocky surface foam anfd dense patterned lacing.

s: Moderate citrus and pine resin aka pine tree sap.

t: Ripe fruit cup including citrus, and pine resin, followed by a sharp hop bite towards the back of the mouth. Bitterish finish.

m: Medium with very good body. Plentiful carbonation tingle.

o: A tasty and substantial IPA, definitely hop-dominated.

Serving type: growler
