Aroma - Citrusy and piney. Good amount of dry hopping. I'd say pine predominates slightly.

Appearance - Nice golden hue. Pretty clear. Pretty simple looking IPA. Not much of a head.

Taste - Citrus and pine mingle well and the 75 IBUS finish with bitter, and not sweet. It is very good, if not slightly imbalanced, but hey, it's an American IPA. It is very close to a great balance. Very drinkable. It is a solid IPA.

Mouthfeel: Slightly overcarbonated for the style.

Overall: A very good selection that I am happy to have at the tap room. Get out and try it.

Served in a Becker pint. No bottled on date.

Pours slightly hazy, lemon - gold color. Firm, one-finger, white head that dies slowly.

Nose is faint esters, predominate pine, and just a swirl of orange or grapefruit depending on the sniff. Nice, but faint.

Really like this piney and citrus-y palate! Pine really carries through the whole drink, only the slightest bread malt hitting at mid-palate and in the finish. The citrus reminds of grapefruit, with ester notes popping up in the swallow.

Feel is a light-medium, okay carb. A little watery.

Hop profile shines on the palate, less so on the nose. I would definitely have this again. A solid IPA, without a doubt.
