Enjoyed from a growler into a pint glass. Special thanks to HopDerek for bringing it over.

Pours a clear golden copper with a huge poof of white head. It eventually settled down some and left good lacing. Aroma is big with piney hops, citrus, and some light sweetness.

Taste is strong with Centennial hops and citrus plus an almost overpowering amount of resinous pine. As it warms an underlying backbone of caramel sweetness emerges. Finishes with a combo of sweetness and a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky from all the pine.

This was a pretty drinkable West Coast style IPA from Rock Bottom. It's piney nature definitely stands out but I personally didn't mind it as I thought it gave the flavor a bit of an attitude.

Clear,goldenbody with no head but left some lacing.

Hops,malt and pine.

Hops,pine and malt.The pine isnt the best part about this beer,its pretty nasty actually.

Carbonation is low,but still powerful enough to force bubbles up the glass.

I wouldnt order this again.I didnt like the pine taste.it was very offensive.Take away the pine and its a good ipa but keep the pine and its not my thing.
