Pours a cloudy orange, not much visible carbonation. 2 inch thick fluffy white head, decent retention and left some good lacing during the drinking period.
Aroma of lemon peel, lemon zest. That notable citrus hop aroma lets you know what you're in store for...
Light malt base with a strong citrus hop presence. I'm not a hop head but this isn't too overpowering - it's not hop juice but you're in for a hoppy ride.
Medium bodied IPA with a lingering bitterness on the tongue, the carbonation helps keep the palate clean and clear.
Good drinkability albeit a little high on the abv scale for a session beer. Could have more than one in a night but for some reason the carbonation in this brew makes me burp a lot more than I'm use to...

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.
