This is a beautiful, almost perfect looking IPA. Pours a deep gold-orange with a finger a half of tight, sudsy white head. Good lace retention too.
In terms of smell, you get a big whiff of pine as soon as you crack the can. This dominates for the duration, with just a faint whiff of sweet orange in the background.
Taste is a little one-note at first, with big cool hop, piney bitterness dominating. Like the smell, there are hints of orange and caramel as the beer warms and mellows.
Mouthfeel is really great -- seemingly creamy and dry at the same time, with a long lemony finish.
A big piney IPA that doesn't deviate too far from the formula, but it's solid and well-done.
