Pours a cloudy, dark amber coloration with a small, fluffy head. Smells of biscuity, caramel malt and resinous, citrus hops, with notes of grapefruit and pine. Taste is a great balance of biscuity, caramel malt and bitter, resinous, fruity, slightly floral and herbal/spicy hops, with citrus and lighter tropical notes of grapefruit, tangerine and pineapple, as well as quite a bit of pine coming through. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some grapefruit, pine and herbal accents lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

This makes for a very nice East Coast IPA with a good balance of bitter, resinous, slightly floral hops and solid malt backbone, which provides a little sweetness here, while finishing with a good, not too extreme bitterness. I'm always happy to come across a nice old-school IPA among the sea of NEIPAs and this one, while being just a tad too sweet and floral for my personal taste, is still a very enjoyable example of the style that is quite resinous, which I can always dig.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium to dark copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate ruby red + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger pillowy sudsy foamy very light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film (covering about 70% of the surface) surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, pine, tropical/mango, herbal, and spicy hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel malts with a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith, pine, tropical/mango, herbal, and spicy hops which imparts a moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a really nice combination of hop flavors + aromas with a solid enough malt backbone. A classic West Coast style IPA and really enjoyable - I could easily have a couple of these.

Can dated 12/7/17. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick foamy head. There is a bite too much carbonation because it foam came out when I opened the can. Head retention and lacing are both excellent. Slight citrus aroma with some honey, maybe caramel and a piney resin. Nice smooth taste. There is some citrus, honey, caramel and bitter piney resin. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

Bought it bottled at the local bar.
Look: dark amber and wood, feeble foam disappearing in couple of minutes
Smell: pleasant honey and flowers
Taste: very bitter with flowerish notes.
Feel: light carbonation and oily structure.
Overall: unfortunately, this is not my style. Nose is way better than mouth.

Serving: 500 ml can (stamped best before "12/07/17"), poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber gold with a towering head of thick, white, soap sud bubbles. Fantastic sticky lace.

Smell: Pale malt grain, grapefruit rind, hints of caramel and dank hops.

Taste: Solid malt body - both grainy and sweeter caramel - along with plenty of grapefruit, citrus rind, pine resin and some earthy hops. Hints of spicy, fruity Belgian hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Solid IPA with good balance of juicy citrus hops and malty body along with some subtle Belgian yeast spice.

Love the pine taste. Reminds me of Fresh Squeezed.

Pours an opaque, slightly hazy amber with a nice full frothy heady that leaves sticky and tacky lacing - very appealing. Resin, orange zest, citrus aromas dominate. Smooth balanced malt and hop, highly drinkable, smooth finish, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent balanced IPA.

Golden orange pour with a two finger white head. Pine, orange, grapefruit and bitterness on the nose, with perhaps a touch of banana. Pine resin and bitterness up-front on the tongue, developing into grapefruit, orange peel and touches of peach. Slightly dank, dry earthy aftertaste. Slight carbonation but smooth as well... Very easy drinking for a 7% ABV beer.

This is interesting. Poured from a can into a tulip cup. Cloudy orange color with a thick fluffy head and great lacing. The smell was great, citrusy with berries and a bit of pepper. The taste was grapefruit with some earthy funkiness. Over all it was a fun beer to drink and I would get it again.

I really dig this beer. With all the West Coast vs East Coast IPAs, this finds its own space to shine. Good bitterness, decent floral hop taste with a good amount of piney resin on the tongue. I'll go back to this again and again.
