A- Copper/amber with a one finger white head. Mostly clear. Some thin lacing on the glass.

S- Malty. Some citrus/pine notes, but not as much as I expected.

T- Bitter pine, citrus, hay(?) with a malty backbone. Alcohol well hidden.

M- Medium body and smooth. Carbonation on the low end but enough. Very bitter but it works.

O- A hop bomb for sure. I liked it. Not for the timid/1st time IPA drinker for sure!

12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by date of 10/20/2014 poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours amber with a slight haze and 1/2 finger of head with a full lace down the glass

Smell: Piney hops and slight floral note

Taste: The hop character starts off earthy and a bit floral and spicy in the middle; finishes bitter with a pine note

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and feels slightly oily

Overall: This is a solid IPA that has whats almost becoming an "old-school" flavor as crazy as that sounds. The newest and modern IPA are really focusing on citrus flavors but this beer really reminds me of how my very first IPAs tasted like a pine cone. Its been over a year and half since I last had this, its a classic and will stand the test of time.
