Poured from bottle into a Teku glass.

After pouring gently into the glass, the appearance is good with an inch thick head and a light amber to amber color.

Aroma is dominated by that of hops and pine - pine as you'd smell walking through the woods, also present are citrus in the form of fresh tangerine and a sweet malty wrapper all around.

The taste is pretty in-line with the aroma. The residual bitterness after every sip may be a bit strong compared to other IIPAs, but it is still quite enjoyable nonetheless.

Mouthfeel is great, medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation that supports the flourishing of its taste. Think of a carbonated fresh squeezed, filtered fruit juice.

This is a very enjoyable IIPA that I would definitely purchase again. I have not enjoyed every organic beer (or wine for that matter) that I've tried - but I must say that this one is pretty solid. What will be interesting (based on the organic nature) is to see if they can keep it consistent batch after batch.

Pours into an impy pint glass a chill hazed lighter golden with a lacey half finger white head atop.Some citrusy hops and sugary sweetness in the nose,the sweetness seems pretty big.The sweetness is really not big at all on the palate,citric and bitter hops dominate with some sugary sweetness lingering in the finish,the alcohol gets bigger as I drink more.A solid DIPA from hippies out in Berkeley,not overly sweet just the right amount of sweetness.

Im not a big fan of organic beers other than A Getman Weisse but Im officially a fan now!
Cold bomber from WholeFoods in SF.
Nice mid size head after I pour into a big 21oz goblet, beautiful golden/orange color.
This beer has a nice but not over whelming smell of hops, not Dank like.
Pretty balanced taste, Im sure this isnt only Simcoe but mostly Id believe, 2nd big gulp and Im officially impressed, no malt backbone like most DIPA's
Very good carbonation, nice resin feel that maintains between drinks.

I can't believe this was $4.99 @ Wholefoods, I bought 3-14 drank 3-15, pretty sure it was bottled mid February, great job by Bison with their first DIPA, I dont wanna over hype this beer but the price is almost unbeatable, hope we get it on tap @ Toronado
