On tap at the brewery. Light amber with a lasting creamy head. Aroma similar to the pale, but supercharged; very aromatic and piney hops. The flavor is big on pine and spruce, with a little grapefruit and just enough pale malt sweetness to keep it together. This is a pretty nice IPA, and I can see how it is so popular as my server said--apparently they don't do growler fills anymore because they were always running out of it. My only hang-up is the pine dominated hop profile; I would much prefer a more floral or tropical flavor.

hazy straw color, nice lace, oily on the palate, stinky nose, medium-length finish. amarillo, centennial, and summit hops used in this brew. citrus/grapefruit/pine hop character, followed up with malt to balance the mouthfeel. wasn't in love with this beer, it was a little unbalanced.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is pine and grapefruit.
The taste is moderate pine bitterness with a biting bitter finish.
The texture is medium.
It's nice.
