4.25/5 rDev +9.3%
12oz to a snifter, best before 10/22
Pours a really dark golden orange with a finger and a half of foam. Not bad retention, down to half a finger after a minute or two. Pretty hazy, low carbonation
Smells pretty floral. Upfront heavy pine, followed by a lot of citrus- mostly all grapefruit. A little sweet caramel on the malts, touch of alcohol on the finish
Taste follows well. Lots of heavy pine, backed up by some relatively submissive citrus. A much less sweet caramel malt come through on the back
Feel is a medium body, high bitterness. Alcohol hidden well, super easy to drink
Overall this beer really reminds me of when my friends and I would attempt to down Torpedoes in high school. I got that first initial super piney shock of hops on my first couple sips of this six pack, brought back a lot of memories. And to think now I knock these guys back no problem

3.89/5 rDev 0%
12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by date of 11/04/2014. Poured into a Becker glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep amber with 2 fingers of head and plenty of lacing
Smell: Earthy hops a little malt
Taste: Bitterness up front with some pine and earth notes in the middle which rounds out in the finish with spruce and a little malt
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and clean finish
Overall: A good IPA with just a hint of hop resin feel but not cloying. Well balanced and will give hopheads their fix.
