look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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.
