Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass
A: Pours a clear, lively copper hue with an eggshell colored head. The head is thick and creamy a retains a nice frothiness for some time after the pour. Bubbly lacing crops up all over the sides of the glass upon each sip. A very refreshing looking beer.
S: Sweet piney and resiny hops blast the nose up front, giving way a waft of sweet caramel malts hiding away in the background. You can smell this beer from a ways away and seems to draw you in with pleasant aromas of orange peel and tangerine.
T: Aggressive hops dominated by notes of thick pine resin, orange/lemon peel, come through up front making for a delightful blend of sweet, refreshing, and intriguingly earthy tastes. The beer departs the palate with slightly sweet notes of caramel malts and ends with a definitive crisp character. Surprisingly low bitterness in the aftertaste given the dominance of the hops.
M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a certain stickiness upon the lips. Clean and dry in the finish with a moderate warming sensation passes down the throat.
O: Definitely one of the better beers I have had. Superbly drinkable and well crafted in my opinion, I couldn't think of an occasion where I would turn one down. The full and refreshing flavor will keep me coming back for more.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
