64 oz growler poured into a pub-style pine glass.

Appearance
Golden-yellow with 1 finger of loose, off-white head that dissipates quickly. Good clarity with light carbonation.

Nose
Candied orange, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, pine, and candy sugar.

Taste
Pine sap, pineapple, dank greens, and bright florals. Candied orange, grapefruit zest, and lemon pith. Candy sugar backbone with suggestions of caramel. Lingering notes of pine needle and zest. A good punch of bitterness hits the back end.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, oily, smooth, semi-dry and moderately bitter.

Overall
Hot damn, the 11.25% abv is hidden well! Very west coast, very dank, very good. This is up there with the best of them.

Bottled on 2-16 - extra fresh!
Appearance: poured a beautiful clear golden/orange color. One finger bubbly head that quickly faded to a thin film.
Smell: Huge floral, tropical and citrus fruit aromas.
Taste: Nice grapefruit taste, along with pineapple and mango flavors as well. Light malty sweetness, nicely balanced. A little heat from the 11.2%.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, silky smooth, very nice and sharp.
Overall: What an outstanding brew - I wish this was available in CO. It ranks up there with the best big IPAs.
