Nose is citrus, orange, pine, grapefruit, orange. Taste is grassy, piney, citrus, grapefruit. Nice lingering bitterness. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Good beer. I'd happily drink it again.

Pours a dark dirty orange color. suspended sediment and yeast seen throughout the beer in a cloudy appearance. Frothy off-white head dissipates steadily eventually leaving no residual head or lacing.

Smell has notes of pine, sap, honey, with hints of citrus and grainy malts in the background.

Taste follows the nose - lots of pine, sap, pine needles and grass up front. Hints of citrus and a honey like sweetness come through. Flavors are heavy and thick. Bit of a grainy malt backbone is present, but not super noticeable. Very bitter lingering finish.

Feel is thick, sticky, and sappy. Feels more like a DIPA than an IPA. Medium carbonation. Bitter, but not dry finish.

Overall this is a solid IPA. Just wish it was a bit easier drinking for an IPA.
