Notes / Commercial Description:
An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint.
A lovely golden-orange with a three-finger, fomay head from an aggressive pour. The head dissipates to scattered foam and some lacing at the top of the glass.
Wonderful aroma, lots of pine resin and citrus with a hint of pineapple and candied orange.
The taste is really good. Resinous pine and grapefruit pith, some orange and a surprisingly mild but dry and lingering bitter note.
Mouthfeel is medium and a bit sticky with, perhaps, a bit more than average carbonation.
Overall, I really enjoy this beer. A nice take on an IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can. IP trade extra.

A: Copper / orange in appearance with a fluffy white foam head.

S: Grapefruit peel, tons of citrus and pine.

T: Pine tree, grapefruit with some sweet malt notes.

M: Moderately carbonated, lingering bitterness, light citrus notes with the aftertaste.

O: A solid example of the style, American IPA. If this was locally distributed it'd be in my fridge on a regular basis.
