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.

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
