Cloudy pale yellow color, with white head that dissipates rapidly. When you put your nose down in the glass it literally slaps your face with its big citrus flavor. Lemon, lime, and grapefruit combined with a thick piney aroma. Taste is phenomenal. Absolutely one of the best IPAs I have ever had! Taste resembles the smell of balsam fir trees, and reminds me of... no,... not Christmas,... but shearing Christmas trees as a teenager. Mouthfeel is a lot like the nose over the top, slap you up, I AM an IPA. You will pucker up on this beer.

Overall, I would absolutely seek this beer out, because until you find something else like it, you won't find anything else like it.

A - hazy peach colored ale topped with a creamy off-white head
S - fruity aroma with plenty of toasted grain and bready malt; milder citrus and pine
T - actually sweet and malty up front with caramel, bread, and toasted grain; bitter pine and grapefruit follow and completely punish the palate with bitterness
M - medium-full body, resinous and drying, while the pine lingers on. Alcohol is a bit warming but not overly hot
O - nice, unique IPA. Definitely gives the palate a whoopin' with the hops, but there are nice flavors with a solid and present malt backbone here.

Pours a very hazy blend of some combination of amber, orange, and gold. The smell is mostly pine with a faint hint of something floral and citrusy. I get a smooth, very full mouthfeel along with a huge bite of intense piney bitterness. The pine carries into the aftertaste. Bitter and piney are the two words to describe this beer, and you will love it or hate it depending on how you feel about those two words.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy orange body with a thick ring of white and a few bubbles trailing up the sides.

S- The green woody hops lead to some herbal hop aromas and a pineapple weed hint in the finish.

T- Nice malt sweetness is soon covered by a full green herbal flavor with some slight pungent hop finish. A slight sweetness in the finish leads to a slight bitterness with some unripe fruit hops.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- Nice full delicious hops flavor with a good malt sweetness to support it. The bitterness is gentle enough to make this quite drinkable by the pint.
