Light gold color with orange and copper hues. Off-white 1-finger head with short retention. Chill haze.
Orange and grapefruit peel, pine needles, resin, white flowers, dates, ginger, graham crackers on the nose. The pine and resin are not the full volume approach that many West Coast Style IPAs showcase. Nice balance.
Malt notes fade quickly, light biscuit, caramelized orange peel, light floral notes. The hops quickly suck up the rest of the profile on the palate, leaving you with just the hops. Again, hops are not out of control on the volume side of things. Finish lingers in subtlety for some time.
Medium bodied, clean and nice balance in the beer's carbonation.
It's an interesting approach. I wished for more on the palate, but I liked the fact that while the hops are very much in the beer, they are not muscling everything else out of the nose and even on the palate, where they do take over, they are not at a volume that is overpowering to the senses.
