4th review on BA.
Bottle poured to mug
App- Golden honey colored with a nice 2 finger head that sat for a minute and bubbled away. Left a nice haziness on the swirl and the lacing slides every so gently down the glass.
Smell- Very citrus IMO. It was similar to walking around in a fruit section of the farmers market to me, a little lemon, a little more tropical at times, hard to put a finger on it.
Taste- Great begining and finish to this one. Wakes up the taste buds while screaming out for another sip to keep that great flavor coming. After it warmed a little while I made dinner, some more calm flavors woke up for the 2nd half of the beer.
Mouth- Very dry as you take each sip but the malt and hops play well together on this one.
Drink- Keep em coming please if the store I got mine at didnt have a 1 bottle limit. For a IPA and not being such a fan, I found a new fav to always try to have at home.

Acquired from smanrob in a trade. A great trader!
Appearnce - It looks like an IPA should, a light copper color with a white head. Lacing was noted around the glass.
Smell - Pine was noted as the dominant part of the aroma. It was not a dominant aroma, but it left a mark.
Taste - I read in a thread that Blind Pig and Pliny are like licking a pine cone. So I will get that impression to the front and suggest pine is the dominant initial taste. It is not overly bitter. Orange rind and the sourness of grapefruit are also very present. Toward the back, the taste fades quite a bit. That is my greatest disappointed.
Mouthfeel - Lightly carbonated and fairly smooth, this one goes down easy.
Overall - This is not my favorite style but I can certainly appreciate a well crafted beer.
