500ml bottle: Acquired from HopHead84 as an extra in a recent trade. Thanks Shane!
Poured into standard pint, color is hazy orange, with a three-finger creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates leaving heavy sticky lacing on the side.
First whiff and I was kicked in the teeth with heavy citrusy hops. Put the glass down for a few moments, and then gave it another sniff. While the citrus dominates, I also get pine and dry grass aromas as well.
Upon tasting, I get very little malt and the hops present so strongly in the aroma don't come driving through as I had hoped. Don't get me wrong, the grapefruity and piney hops are still there, especially in the finish. But I would love to have seen a bit more malt in the profile.
A very good IPA offering.

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
