a- a solid orange and copper look with an expected fresh hop ale look

s- very fresh hop present trending on the caramel and earthy side. Prickly sweet and spicy theme lingers towards the end

t- great wet hop flavors arise in a caramel malt taste with some solid bitterness. A good fresh hop profile

m- good feel with the right carbonation

o- not the best fresh hop ale out there but wow is it fresh

Reviewed from notes.

First, I really hate that they waxed this bottle. It just makes it more of a pain to open with no functionality. Save the wax and charge a few cents less please.

This poured a rich copper color and had a creamy thick head with decent retention and lacing.

This had the citrus scent that seems to be fairly common, with a stronger pine scent than many.

The initial taste is tangy bitter citrus with a strong pine flavor that really comes through after. It finishes with a lingering bitterness and semi-dry mouthfeel.

I generally don't like the often strong bitter flavor in IPAs and DIPAs, but this had an interesting flavor to go with it that I found enjoyable.
