Hazy amber with one finger of dense bone color head that lasts a good ten minutes and leaves lots of fine bubble lace.
The smell is pine resin and toasted bread crust.
The taste is piney hop resins with a strong and sweet caramel malt support.
The mouthfeel is medium with adequate carbonation. The finish is balanced and very lightly dry.
Overall an easy drinking and mellow brew for the style.

22 oz glass bomber from a local Mom and Pop style convienience store $3.99 Pours a burnt orange colour body with a huge thick and frothy cream coloured hed. Aroma of spruce tip and lemon zest hops with a deep caramel maltiness. Strong yet well balanced taste..the resin, dankness and spruce well balanced by a robust toffee maltiness. Very nice mouth feel..thick and glorious. Overall a very nice balanced IIPA.

Handsome dark orange-amber color with a fine frothy foam in the Affligem chalice. Scent of orange blossoms. Cedar and citrus peel. Sudsy mouthfeel with an acidic touch.

Orange marmalade flavor, complete with the bitter peel. Rather sweet, but the sugar goes well with the woody dark flavors and the abundant bitterness. A dose of grapefruit in the aftertaste. Rated at 87 IBUs but it's plenty drinkable. Yet another tasty Double IPA. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.
