3.61/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle dated 140203 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of pine
Head average (3.5 cm), white, creamy, diminishing to a 3 mm ring
Lacing Ok – many small islands of small bubbles
Body light yellow, hazy, much suspended material
Flavor begins with a solid hit of pine which fades to a light bitterness; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation

A pleasant IPA, but closer to a pale ale, IMHO

Found this cheap at $2.69 for the single at Vintage Estate. Into a pint glass.

A - Very Hefeweizen like with a light yellow with a deep hazy color. Head is just a 1/4 inch that settles to a thick lace ring. Sticky lacing awesome.
S - In the glass it smells very tame some grapefruit hops fruity yeasts and some citrus zest. I taste.
T - Really digging the sweet fruit yeasts, not dry one bit, and the balancing grapefruit hop bitterness. Reminds me of a Belgium pale with more hops. Tasty.
M - Can't really pick up the 8%. Light to medium very well crafted.

Overall worth picking up as expected not super hoppy but very easy to drink.

Advertised as a BIPA, this struck me as halfway between an IPA and a Belgian IPA. The Belgian yeasts are there, but they lay in ambush behind a surprisingly aggressive hop profile. Drinks surprisingly easily despite the notable hop bite. I enjoyed this one. Right on the cusp between pretty good and very good.
