One of my favorites. Absolutely incredible with a side of pita/hummus.

This is a good brew but not great- i'll certainly drink it but would not seek it out were there better alternatives. Definitely a good amount of bitterness, medium amount of sweetness. No really interesting hop flavors- just some pineapple and a little earthiness. Like a better version of SN Torpedo.

Super hoppy. After 2 or 4 you aren't overwhelmed by the hoppiness. Great beer though. Alcohol content is pretty high and that is good because after 4 or 5 you are pretty much just spitting out pine trees.

Poured all cellar temperature-like into my tulip. About time, really.

The first thing you need to know is that this is a very pretty IPA. I mean seriously pretty. Radiant orange, rocky, long-lasting, just off-white head, and glamorous lacing. A real looker.

It smells of fragrant pine, hops of the dank, herbal variety I swear I get a little basil and oregano, but I WAS making pizza sauce a half-hour ago), and orange. Bit of honey. A zesty aroma. Yes, that's the word.

Oh, okay. so that's how it is. The flavor just somewhat exploded on my palate. I wasn't quite prepared for that. This tastes like the result of squeezing fresh oranges, lemons, and grapefruit, and then mixing that citrus juice with pure pine needle extract. It's the bread and butter of IPAs: citrus and pine, but turned up to an extravagant level. Not to mention the lovely bready finish with a lingering balance of astringency and malts.

Love the feel. It's got substance, and substantial carbonation, but at the same time a certain softness.

An wonderful example of an ale that proves you don't need a bunch of ridiculously nuanced complexities to be great (don't get me wrong - I like complexity, too). But this is just unabashed, unashamed, IPA deliverance. And it wooks pwerty. :B
