Good appearance. Dark amber with ruby hints. Nice head and lacing.

Very appealing mild citrus and stronger pine aroma. Totally correct for the style. Not a super strong aroma but quite good.

Taste is typical American IPA and similar to SN Torpedo to my taste buds. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Not huge citrus tatses but a bit of orange is there. Nice piney flavour, resinous feel and solid malt core make this a good drinking IPA. IBUs are noticeable and welcome!

Overall, a very solid offering and rendition of this renown style of beer. Perhaps nothing outstanding or remarkable for those who've tried a few of this style but definitely enjoyable. This would have a wow factor for anyone not used to big, hoppy US beers.

93/100

Had this on tap at Green Man Taproom in Colorado Springs, and the next day in Denver at Falling Rock Taphouse. Delicious beer you can't find in NJ, DE or Southeastern PA.
