3.6/5 rDev -0.3%
Grassy, weedy, earthy hop aroma. Fairly heavy, kinda' sticky and resiny in taste.
Needed to pour a little aggressively, but did get about an 1.5 inch darker head with good stamina. Somewhat cloudy with a darker yellow color to a golden amber. Some lacing, but the head does settle out before the drink is done.
Flavor seems to approach the aroma quite closely. Firm to aggressive bitterness on the extended finish leaving a strong grapefruit quality to the experience. There appears to be a heavy malt character that I'm trying to pinpoint, but it could just be the heaviness of the hops. There is a touch of sweetness, but the presence of the bitterness is what stays with me. Fairly full-bodied with the carbonation helping it out, but it holds a good softness in the feel.
This one is growing on me as I think about it and take additional pulls, however, in the end it is the mix of hops that doesn't overly impress, or at least impress enough to say "I'll have another".

Pours a translucent yellow with a one finger white head. Solid lacing. Nose is musty grass clippings and pine cone. The palate is super hop forward. Very astringent bitterness up front with pine and spicy hops attempting to peek through. Bitter finish is lingering and coats your mouth for a super oily mouth feel.
Overall, a typical one trick pony IPA.

A: Translucent golden with a white head.
S: Fresh orange, mango in the nose.
T: Delicious bitter citrus peel, fresh orange fades into a malty finish. Deliciously dry.
M: Medium bodied with a bit less than average carbonation.
O: Though it's not as good as Moylander or Hopsickle, it is a delicious dry IPA.
