Great beer, good looking and pours while.

Certainly lives up to it's name. Tons of Hop taste. It has some bite, but you forget that by the time you take another sip.

Head lace lines after every sip.

Great and I think I do taste some pine in there like other tasters have noticed. It's not bad, just noticable.

Worth a try.

12oz into pint glass

Slightly hazy dark orange amber with creamy light tan colored head. Little spotty lace.

Scent is fruity (possibly a hint of peach), floral, citrus. Strong and tasty scent, though difficult to identify the elements.

Taste is citrus (grapefruit, orange peel) with a long bitter finish that lingers dramatically. There's a sturdy caramel malt backbone here with slightly toasty and nutty flavors. Very little pine resin - hard to tell if it's really there or if I merely expect it to be.

Mouthfeel is a mouthcoating creamy medium with a hint of warming in the throat.

Drinkability is not as impressive as Stone's IPA but this is certainly easy to drink.

Very good IPA. I love how the bitter finish lasts and the mouthfeel is good but overall I prefer Stone, SN, or Smuttynose IPA.
