Single finger off white head on a clear golden orange body. Aroma is both tangy and musty and forbodes a malt forward IPA. Mostly candied orange, pine resin. Flavors of pine, turpentine, hint of orange tartness with the finish being very bitter and lingering for quite a while. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one is pretty bitter with the hops providing little else or at least not very much your palate can differentiate from the bitterness.
