4.75/5 rDev +2.2%
From a tap at Teresa's in Wayne, PA.
It looked great in the glass. Lighter than most of the IPAs I've been drinking later, more of a yellow then an orange and a bit hazy with a perfect head. It also smelled great. Lots of hops, some fruit and pine. The taste was the best part. It reminded me of Sucks but there was more to it with some effervescence on the tongue that was reminiscent of Heady Topper. I thought the finish was a tad bitter compared to Heady or Sip of Sunshine but fairly dry and very refreshing. In all, an excellent beer worth the hour's drive.

There is nothing I can say that hasn't been articulated. So balanced. Like being in a piney dream. It will always have a special place in my heart. Light amber color, great lacing, great malt balance, tropical notes resonate throughout with a great pine smell and resinous taste, but not sticky and not overly dank. I am already craving my next experience.
