12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Pours a dark gold with 1 finger of dense white foam. Strong pine and citrus on the nose with mangonand grapefruit in the background. Light weight, crisp mouthfeel. Big hop flavor up front. Lots of piney bitterness with some grapefruit and caramel. Decent malt on the back end. Dank, bitter-pine aftertaste.

If you like your IPA's more pine/dank forward, this beer is for you. Awesome IPA all around. Plenty of bitterness, some fruit presence but not a lot. I pick this one up every chance I get.

Purchased at my local spirits shop in Tampa, FL. $12.99 for the 4-pk, outrageous! Btld 3/10/15, drunk 4/13/15.

Pours a murky yella-amber. Mango, passionfruit, grapefruit pith, and other lush, juicy tropical and citrus notes... sour peach, granny smith apple, I could go on and on. A much more subdued flavor profile when compared to the nose: spicy piney/resinous notes accompany some fruity-tartness with lingering bitter pine and apricot/peach skin. Comparable to Racer 5, but not quite a syrupy sweet, which I like, much more drinkable than the likes. 8.93/10

What she said: "Better than the other IPAs you like... milder." 6/10
