Apparently, the recipe on this changed recently. I had it in the past and was underwhelmed, but I found this to be really outstanding. Very hop-forward, but complex. Pine, citrus, a bit of earthy spice, with a great clean finish. I've had a lot of IPAs and IIPAs lately, and this one beats a lot of more popular options (Dirtwolf, Apex, Maharaja, Fresh Squeezed, and Sculpin to name a few).

bright yellow color, huge white foamy head! beautiful looking brew....
smells and tastes lemon-y and orange-y... strange kind of bitterness and... salty! smell is much better than the taste, though. does anyone else get the saltiness??? drinkable, but the double IPA was much better, I feel.
overall a decent beer but not one I would order or purchase again with so much else out there and available.

Lower score on BA than I expected. It' my type of IPA. Nice fresh, not malty IPA. Orange, Pine, lemon, some mango, peach towards the finish. Just an outstanding IPA, for the price, 4.29 a bomber. Not bad at all. One of the best IPA's I've had in the past month.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours from a bomber a clear straw yellow with a solid 1-inch white head with good retention and yields sheet and splotchy lace.

N: Somewhat mutted, but still getting pine and orange/citrus with some cracker and floral notes.

T: Battle between pine and malt results in a tie. Well balanced. Lemony and grapefruit.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with some lingering hop resins.

O: Pleasantly suprised as I'd heard good things about this brewery. Not disappointed.

Reviewed While Drinking.

A- A pretty darn good look to this beer. An off-white head (in the direction of brown), and a nice golden amber opaque liquid. I poured it with about an inch and a half of head into a pint glass and it looked very appetizing. Nothing special, and to be honest a little lighter in color than I generally like my IPA's, but still nice to look at.

S- Not very much smell to this one and what there is has a little too much pine to it.

T- The taste is not bad, and its not great. Its okay. Up front there is not too much flavor. and the back end in more pine than fruit and to be honest just nothing special. If you really stop to apreciate the middle of the swig there is a nice little warm woody taste which I do enjoy, and that really makes the beer something that I am happy to have a pint of.

F- The mouthfeel is really the highlight of the beer in my opinion. Extremely smooth and overall pleasant. Hard to describe but I like the way this beer feels in my mouth.

O- With a nice look and a great mouthfeel, I think this is a beer which you should drink with some friends at dinner when your focus is not the beer. It will go well with the food, and it won't draw your attention away from others with an overwhelming taste or aroma.

*I would like to say that this is a great value for a pint. I got mine for $3.99

3.48/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Murky yellow-orange thin fluid with three-finger crusty foamy white head. Nice lacing!

VERY light and piney. Nothing huge on the nose. Dank and lots of sticky citra.

An overwhelming amount of dry, earthy, pine bitterness. Flavors are fulfilling. Carbonation is a bit much and sweetness is non-existent. Fairly standard; nothing experimental.

Flavors are kind of a miss. A bit too light and heavy on the bitterness. IPA has GREAT potential with a wonderful base, but needs to be tweaked to become noteworthy. Not sure on the cost, But I wouldn't pay much over $5/22oz.
