Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (no date) into a pint glass.
A strong pour yields a 2-finger cream-colored head that slowly fades to a thick, clumpy dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a hazy amber honey with a decent amount of carbonation bubbles. Lacing clings to the glass like cobwebs from the top to the bottom of the glass.
Strong pine hops aromas spew from the liquid as it is poured into the glass. A closer inspection reveals more pine aromas along with citrus and a bit of biscuity malt. Notes of grapefruit and orange rind are well-balanced by the other aromas.
Strong citrus flavors hit the tongue at the beginning of each sip with notes of grapefruit, peach, and orange peel. Upon swallowing, the citrus hops flavors become more pronounced and are met by bittering grassy hops flavors. As these begin to fade, a biscuity, bready malt flavor comes in to add a bit more complexity and balance to the taste. A pleasant grassy bitterness rests on the tongue at the end of each sip.
The medium body is crisp and refreshing, flowing easily from the beginning to the end of each sip. The carbonation is harly noticeable but is certainly doimg a lot of work in the background as well as in the swallow.

The beer comes in a super hazy vibrant peachy orange color.
The aroma has light orange, spicy pine, dankness, a bit of that cat pee along with grass, herbs, and a light grainy malt.
The flavor follows of peaches, mango, bitter grapefruit, grapefruit and orange peel. The finish is again of grapefruit pith as well as a long piney and herbaceous flavor. There’s a bready and grainy malt flavor in there. A medium and very drinkable body.
A very well balanced IPA that is easy to drink. It has subtle flavors throughout, a light body, and very dry finish.
