Poured into a chalice from the bottle.

A: nice white multi-finger head that compacts to a 2 mm disk. clear deep golden color.

S: strong hops scents, Pine, grapefruit and pineapple dominate.

T: strong hoppy notes as in the nose, strong bittering hops are there. malt is only slightly present, yeast was used for one purpose...and it wasn't taste!

M: Spicy finish, with spritely piney flavors. Dry and puckery. Bitter citrus on outbreath. Full but not overly ful

O: Hell yes. Very good citrusy piney IPA.

This beer is the jam- bitter like a mofo and piney as a forest. This is one of my all time favorite IPAs. Clear and two finger head with a vigorous pour (pour vigorously).

Smell is super piney. Not much to say except an exceptional pine resin smell.

Tastes awesome- pine resin aroma and bitterness balanced with a slight biscuity malt profile.

Medium light bodied with moderate carbonation. If you love your ipas aggressive bitter and uncivilized, this is the beer for you. Seek it out. Now.

Super excited to try this one! Another find at Palm Beach TW.
A - 4.25 - Nice super clear amber-gold color with a white film of bubbles on top that leave nice lacing.
S - 4.75 - BOOM! Grapefruit, pineapple, pine, resin, ganja, absolutely no malt to speak of (and there shouldn't be!) It smells amazing.
T - 4.75 - Grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, lemon/lime, pine, resin, ganja. Just an explosion of hops.
M - 4.75 - Light/medium, so bitter. Alc completely covered. Aftertaste is grapefruit, orange zest, pine...
O - 4.75 - This is an amazing beer. Most similar to La Cumbre Elevated or Ballast Point Sculpin. Just another example of why the overhyped IPAs aren't really as good as people say they are.
