Pours a finger and half of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a rich, sappy pine smell. Nice and bold.
The taste is excellently balanced, moderate to strong pine and lemon bitterness. Good malt profile.
The texture is crisp, medium body.
An excellent IPA.

Had this beer on tap at CR Gibbs during cool April nights. Wasn't sure what to try and the staff recommended it. New Micro out of the middle of nowhere. Was pleasantly surprised. Again, I very rarely write reviews, but felt this one deserved one since its new to BA.

Appearance: beer was clear, obviously filtered, which is good for new, small micros. It had about a one finger head that left decent lacing in the glass. Carbonation was well, with lots of bubbles visible through the non-hazy pint glass. Color was copper.

Smell: my favorite part of this IPA. A big burst of piney and floral notes and a very strong presence of citrus. Great smelling IPA.

Flavor: flavor followed the nose with a very strong pine and citrus hop flavor, however the beer was surprisingly not bitter at all. In fact, I am rating it a little lower for not being bitter enough. Lots of hops, with the taste of a little caramel malt. Very good.

Mouthfeel: again, it was a little watery or thin. I think a few more IBU's would make the beer seem fuller bodied along with a touch more malt for balance. Still a very easy drinking pint, I'm splitting hairs here.

Overall: a very good IPA. Congrats to this new brewery, the people sitting next to me seem to be enjoying as well.

Clear Amber with a white head with good retention
Aroma Is very strong with lots of fresh citrus, danky hops, blueberry, pine resin, and a light peach note
Flavor is very good, bitterness matches the sweetness and quickly segues into layers of hop flavor.
Finish is a light bitterness remaining but it is all about the hop flavor. Your burps will taste like hops
Excellent ipa will keep this one in the fridge on a regular rotation
