12 oz bottle into tulip.

A: definitely hazy. very rich orange hued brew. head is bubbly and inviting. retention is decent, but with good lacing.

S: lemon, grapefruit. caramel, toasted bread. boatloads of piney fresh smells.

T: very pine, very chinook. definitely some notes of grapefruit as well. a little bit of caramel flavor right in the middle. a little bit dark toasted. finish is very bitter, earthy, and resinous. the bitterness lingers right through the finish without being overbearing.

M: average carbonation on a medium body.

D: pretty tasty A-IPA from a brewery i have never had anything from before. really enjoying the chinook factor, but there is definitely enough malt to keep everything balanced.

Served in a pint glass on tap at 3 Rivers 6 Pack.

Hazy orange, clearly rising bubbles, with a crisp white head. Tons of layered lacing.

Smells slightly citrusy and resinous, with pine and hops.

Pulp, malt, lemon citrus zest all come through in taste.

Feel is thick with medium carbonation. Smooth with a really pulpy aftertaste.

Overall this is better than I remember it being in a bottle. It's a little too zesty for my liking, but it's still decent. Cheers.

A - Dark orange. Leaves some lacing. Retains a small head. Pretty frothy with big bubbles.

S - Little grapefruit and citrus. Not a very pungent smell.

T - Same as the smell. Some bitterness with some grapefruit and citrus notes. Nothing special here.

M - Pretty light mouthfeel. No alcohol presence.

O - Slightly above average IPA. Wouldn't get another one. Probably not bad as a session beer. Pretty refreshing and crisp, which is its main redeeming quality.

Pours a nice hazy orange with lote of off white head. Smells a bit skunky and off... Sme slight hops bit not particularly potent. Motley just sweet and dry. Fairly bland taste. Overall a decent mouthfeel and well carbonated. Not something i would recommend to anyone.

A - Hazy, golden copper body with a one finger, off white head...the head receded to a thin, bubbly cap...decent lacing was left behind

S - Citrus hops really pop...bitter, fresh, rind is also coming out pretty's green in a way...there is a slight malt backbone

T - The citrus in the flavor is not as predominate as it was in the's also not as bitter as the nose suggested...there is a nice balance going on...the caramel malt is strong with just a little bit of sweetness...the hops have a green flavor to them, which is actually refreshing

M - Medium has a slight thickness/syrupy texture to it...very balanced

O - I liked this beer, but I found the nose to be more enjoyable than what the flavors offered...nice balance, but there needed to be more flavor on the palate

Copper orange in color with a deep haze. Generally has a raw unfiltered appearance. Poured with a dense, rocky, off-white foam that reduces to a healthy cap that leaves lots of sticky lacings on the glass. Piney and grapefruit hop aromas with sweet caramel malt beneath. The pine hop aroma is dominant. Smooth but resinous feel. On the heavier side of full-bodied with nice carbonation. Pine and citrus grapefruit hop flavors from beginning to end with pine hop flavors being dominant. A sweet malty caramel malty backbone throughout. Finishes with a a pine hoppy bitterness. Thoroughtly enjoyed this IPA. Would have it time and agian.
