A-Pours a perfect light copper, clear as day and very appetizing. Head retention is ok but not great, only thing saving this from perfect. Nice lacing though.
edit- came back after leaving about quarter a glass in the kitchen after 3 hours....still had carbonation....crazy I know. But definitely made an impression, still tasted great too!
S- smells of citrus and pine, very yummy, a hint of sweetness as well. like putting your face in an orange and grapefruit while in the middle of a forrest. Reminds me of Skiing trees for some reason? needless to say unbelievable.
T- man this is good stuff. very hoppy but not over powering, definetly taste the pine, the taste lingers and still tastes good. would only need a little more sweetness to be perfect. but close to it.
M- well carbonated but a little slickness.
D- overall a very good beer, wish they had better availability, a go to IPA for sure.
