Cloudy orange brew with a white head that leaves a bit of lacing. The smell is very bitter with some sweetness and fruit behind. The taste is slightly sweet with a little fruit and a ton of bitterness. Pretty solid beer.

Bottle Date: presumably within the past couple months
Palate Contaminants: a pork chop

Appearance is a pleasant translucent medium amber with a fine foam head.

The smell is not strong at all. I definitely get malty sweetness, along with some candied citrus. It's good, but it doesn't have enough power for me to hear all the instruments.

Unfortunately, the taste isn't anything special. It's by no means bad, but it's a goose in a world of peacocks. There's hardly any sweetness, but it's also not particularly bitter. The main character is earthiness, mostly mossy, I'd say.

Feel is moderate weighted with fine carbonation. The aftertaste has more bitter character. Well-crafted, but missing the gustatory part isn't there for me.

Copper and filtered, with lots of small and large rising bubbles. Topped with 4 fingers of foamy beige, beautiful head.

Peaches and apricots and fresh churned butter. Floral piney notes, so fresh its like you're 'just out standing' in the Redwoods.

Amazing. Its very bitter with a fair amount of malt backbone to it. Dry white grapefruit, peaches, and pine.

Medium, resinous body, medium carbonation.

Got at Rincon Taprooms in Santa Rosa 2 days ago, drank in Redding Sept 18th, 2016. Really good IPA. Balanced, smooth, delicious and fresh.
