Still finding my way in the IPA department. This one is a good drinker for a noob like me; loaded with hops yet not overpowering. Did not find it exceptionally piney, as others have.

very nice beer. not as great as the some of the more highly rated beers here that I've had the pleasure to sample, but at less than a buck a bottle at my local supermarket, it's a steal.

A. Easy poor, little head dissipates to lacey ring around the glass. Carbonation is a light stream of bubbles like champagne. Color is dark orange not quite amber in color.
S. Hoppy, pine, fruit, sweet, alcohol.
T. Grapefruit, hops, pine, little yeast. Alcohol is evident.
M. Dry and gritty.
O. This beer is pretty good and the after taste of pine stays with you for a while.

Fantastic beer. Bitter and hoppy without being to extreme. A very good beer to sip.
