Pours a deep copper with a two finger head that settles nicely leaving big globs of foam down the side of the glass,aromas of pine needles and some nuttiness.Taste is a hop heaven piney and resiny with nutty malt backbone very dry makes you want more.A soapiness in the finish may keep the drinkability a little lower but if you like hops you'll like this for sure,well made and highly drinkable well done.

One of my personal staples, this hits all the right notes for me. Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin off white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of floral and pine notes from the hops while also having hints of orange and lemon peel. The taste is crisp and full of flavor. Highly tasty and refreshing.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange color with a fairly tall, creamy and frothy head of golden-tinted foam. Head retention is good, and lots of foamy lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Some light sugar cookie malt aroma up front. Hop aromas are primarily sweet citrus (orange, especially), with some piney and tropical/fruity notes.

T: Nondescript but present maltiness initially. Hop bitterness is strong but not overwhelming. Hop flavors are citric, fruity, and lightly resinous. A second wave of bittering bite kicks in late, with some herbal flavors and a kiss of alcohol.

M: Medium body. Carbonation is supple, smooth, and fairly light. Dryness builds steadily into a predictably hoppy finish.

O: This is a very good IPA, but I don't think it's in my top ten. For an IPA with such a pale, relatively blank malt canvas, I'd expect a more outstanding dose of bitter, resiny hop character. For a conventional take on the style, though, it works really well.

A very decent beer with a pleasant hoppy aroma and a citrusy/piney bitter flavor. Pours a decent head and a color that it's typical IPA. Really nice overall.
