Pour is a deep copper with a two finger fluffy white head. Aroma is piney, citrus hops with some malt sweetness. Taste follows with pine, citrus, resinous flavors balanced by a touch of malt sweetness and biscuity malt. Mouthfeel is medium and very drinkable. Overall an earthy ipa with balance.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/29/2014. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/floral hops and light-moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and light-moderate malt balance; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around outstanding complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
