look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The body is a murky caramel color. The head is cream colored and recedes to a very respectable frothy film. Nice bands of lacing cling to the glass.

Aroma: Very spicy and woody.

Taste: Very much like the aroma with a spicy, cedar body. There's some fruit sweetness buried underneath all of the musty wood. A cardboard dryness comes in the bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: This beer is very woody and one-dimensional, but that's not exactly a bad thing.

Pours a mild copper color with a huge head into my glass.

Spicy, floral nose with an old-school feel. More pine than citrus.

Pine bitterness upfront with a slight hint of citrus. Texture is "chewy" with a doughy finish.

Hop bite fades, soon to be followed by a butter cracker note.

Very drinkable IPA. Not the most IBUs around but a good start for those new to the style.
