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 - 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 strong...it'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 nose...it'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 bodied...it 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

Provided by nhindian. Happy Thanksgiving!

A: Hazy copper pour with a huge white head. Very fluffy, the head towers over the top of the glass without overflowing, and laces really well down the side of my pint glass. Retention is very nice as well.

S: Grapefruit and pine coming through on the hops, which would be expected from Chinook hops. Wish the smell was a bit more powerful, but I do find it quite enjoyable.

T: The taste follows the smell nicely. Light grapefruit hops with a bigger bitterness. The balance is nice in my opinion. I like the bitterness taking over with a clean fruit taste like the grapefruit here.

MF: Crisp and very drinkable. Light body and carbonated very well.

O: I very much liked this. Balanced, drinkable, great taste, would certainly buy this again, especially at the cheap price point it sells for in Pittsburgh.

Aroma: Piney and resiny hop notes assert early and often. Low fruity esters and a touch of caramel sweetness are beaten into submission by the hop aromatics.

Appearance: Ruddy deep amber pour with a low off-white head. Head retention is fair.

Flavor: Prickly, bitey hop bitterness up front. Pine and grassy hop flavors assert mid-palate. Light caramel and bready malt accents after multiple pulls. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is bitter and lingers.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and medium-high carbonation. No astringency or alcohol heat.

Overall impression: A piney, punchy American IPA. Well done!

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.
