12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, floral, grass, bread, light honey, pine, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and solid strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, light honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of resinous pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, pine, floral, grass, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of bright citrus/pine hops with moderate malts; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity of bright and sticky hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A- Hazy light orange with a two finger white head that leaves behind a moderate amount of lace.

S- Apple juice! Also tropical fruit aromas, very sweet.

T- Very refreshing. Apple juice and sweetness upfront followed by tropical fruit. Very piney and bitter dry finish. Very clean.

M- Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.

O- A very refreshing and clean tating IPA. One of my favorite any day IPAs.

Bottle into snifter

Appearance - Medium sized white head, golden, copper, orange, yellow, light active carbonation, nice lacing

Smell - Piny and sweet. Grapefruit, orange hints of honey, brown sugar, roasted malts

Taste - Bitter rich pine flavor, piny oiliness, at the beginning. Nice grapefruit zest hoppiness more on the dry side towards the middle. Malts and a mellow bitterness much like grapefruit zest you get early on.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium bodied, smooth and refreshing but also has a thick syrupy resin like consistency.

Overall - Good beer. Flavors were a bit dryer than I was used to but still pleasant. Loved the piny characteristics of this beer.
