Medium orange pour with a half cm of fine foam. Aroma includes pine and some tropical fruit. The flavor is deeply dank with a crisp finish. This is a really pleasant pint.

Pours a hazy murky darker amber color with a big fluffy cream colored head that falls slow and leaves some good gobs of lace.

Aroma is nice and fruity soft mango, sweet pineapple, and touches of sweet malts. Smell is nice hoppy but not overly bitter smelling.

Taste is like the nose but more starts dank fruity, moves to light tobacco almost vegetable notes . Finish fairly bitter hop resins coating the mouth. A nice deep dank IPA just like the color.

Mouthfeel is only medium smooth carbonation makes for easy drinking.

Overall an enjoyable IPA that I would probably buy on occasion if it was available locally.

Tallboy can into a snifter.

3.0 A: Murky copper plum color. Not quite one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average, especially for the style and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Mix of a few different hop components - pine and grapefruit, nondescript spiciness, orange with a touch of lemon zest, and floral. Mild bready yeastiness with honey and caramel notes. Despite the complexity, it's not as vibrant as I'd like.

3.5 T: Moderate bitterness. The bready yeastiness is pretty strong and distracting at times. Caramel and a slight toastiness. The hops are primarily piney with grapefruit. The other components listed in the smell are there as well, but all pretty subdued.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but it is rather chewy due to the yeastiness.

3.5 D: It's not bad, but I prefer cleaner, less yeasty IPAs as a general rule.
