Poured from the can into a glass.

Deep dark orange color; super murky.

Minimal off-white head; very little lacing.

Coffee & hop bitterness in the nose.

Thick mouthfeel.

Nice citrus hop flavor with a blast of coffee?! Singular & delicious.

Dry pine and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is piney/hoppy with grapefruit and a bit of citrus, with a dry finish. A solid IPA, although a horrible name for an ale.

L- pours an amber brown with a thin head that has much carbonation.
S- Great. Lots of piney hops...I'm a sucker for such smells.
T- A little confusingly over piney. A citrus bite on the way out.
F- Much like many IPAs feel is a little rough.
T- I can drink this for an extended time. Not great, but love the brewery.
