Pours a dark orange color with a finger length head that dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Smells of lots of resinous pine, grapefruit zest, lemon, grass, and a significant amount of carmel/candy sweetness. Smells pretty balanced. Taste starts with a little pine and grapefruit. Then the middle provides a nice malt backbone. Good amount of carmel sweetness and a nice breadiness somewhat balance the hops. Then the finish brings back a lot more pine, but more resinous this time. Also get flavors of grapefruit zest, tangerine, grass, and more carmel sweetness and breadiness. Very balanced. Medium body with a smooth, creamy, and oily mouthfeel. The resinous pine lingers for a while on the finish. A well done ipa that is light on the wallet, not on the hops.
