Pours perhaps a quarter finger of soapy, off-white head, dissipating quickly into a thin film with spots of foam craters. Decent walls of lacing. Dark orange and cloudy. Pleasant citrus aroma, and floral, with hints of pine resin. Tastes moderately bitter up front, quite malty, and piney. Notes of tart grapefruit. Medium-heavy body feels on syrupy side, almost chewy. Moderate carbonation lingers toward back of tongue. Somewhat astringent, leaves a dry feel. A good IPA, but lacking in complexity. Appears to be unfiltered, due to cloudiness. I like this beer, but other than its texture, it doesn't seem to stand out from a standard IPA. Honestly, I bought this because it was the highest-rated Montana IPA on BA. Would still buy again, but not often.

Honey colored body with a thick, foamy white head. Bold pine and citrus hop aromas and a nice touch of floral notes in the background. Juicy, malty flavors; orange and lemon drops; mild malt notes lurk in the rear; a wonderful buildup of hop bitterness raises slowly through taste and provides a nice, low-key hop bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied; semi-dry finish.

This beer is a hop head's delight. The aroma and flavors just pop with juicy citrus fruit goodness. The malts definitely take a back seat to things yet do there part to add balance and body to the end product. The hop varieties used to create this beauty truly shine and create a very memorable ale experience.
