A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color with some hues of yellow. It poured with a half finger high white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemon peel and pine are present in the nose. Faint bits of berries are perceptible.
T: The taste is a mirror image of the smell and has flavors of lemons and pine along with a slight amount of berries. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, crisp, and a little prickly on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has the trademark of Stone pine resins but is accentuated with notes of lemon peel and hints of berries.

Serving type: growler

The body has an amber glow up top and a lighter orange bottom with a moderate white blanket leaving curvy, spotty lace.

Notes of berries with rug, dank cat piss and an intense, burning pine pepper the nose, mixing in a touch of orange here or there.

Taste is spicy orange and berry overpowered by intense bitter pine with a surprisingly soft, fluffy body at first coming up to a medium crisp carbonation and a very dry finish.

The added fruit don't really alter the base too much here--it's still a bitter af IPA, and should simply be left as such.
