Thanks to Deuane for hooking us up with the NN love, down here in Tulsa!
This pours a beautiful, medium shade of deep amber in color. It is crystal clear. It has a loose, foamy head that is slightly tan tinted in color. It starts at almost a fingers thickness, then recedes to a decent sized surface covering layer. Lacing is in mostly thick strands which are sticky enough to hang around for a little while.
Loads of citrus and tropical fruits burst out of this one. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple, tangerine, lemon, light hints of peach, it just goes on and on. Light hints of pine and caramel try to peek through.
Much like the nose, except that all of the fruit flavors have been dipped in pine oils and drizzled with pine sap. There is a very brief appearance by some caramel notes, around 2/3rds of the way through the sip. It opens back up to hops for a lightly drying finish.
This has a medium body and a medium level of carbonation, as well. it has a slight touch of creaminess to it, yet also has a slight stickiness, which is really nice. The finish still manages to be crisp.
This is actually a very balanced beer. The big thing that it has going for it, in my opinion, is that it's completely packed with hop flavor, yet manages to forego a lot of the hop bitterness. This is very appealing to me, as I'm keen on hop flavors, especially tropical and citrus, but don't really care for the bitterness.
The 7.50%abv is also nowhere to be found here, which only ads to it's drinkability.

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.
