look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

pours out fairly orange in color with a two finger white head that has pretty good retention and some nice lacing.

Smell is more piny in nature, a little but of citrus but not much, and a little sweetness from the malt.

Taste is a mix of more prominent pine with a little bit of citrus just like the nose. The pine sticks all the way down the throat and is pretty dominant.

Mouthfeel is semi-thin. Definitely not anything thick

Overall this is a nice east coast IPA with forward piny hops with a tiny bitof citrus. Not a bad beer. Nothing to complain about. It's certainly not as good as Size 11 but that is a hard taste to replicate.

The beer is golden and transparent, with ample effervescence and an inch of white head that leaves a sheet if lacing in its wake. The aroma brings candied citrus, resinous hops. Juicy with a bold hop character. Palate coating with some pine resin stickiness. Pretty good.

Bottle shared by stillmatic2232, thanks man.

Pours a hazy golden orange, with a 2 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells line strong pine sap, some citrus, and a good amount of caramel malt.

The taste is similar. A grapefruit and pine bite hits the palate first- this IPA has a really nice hop bite to it. The malt is a bit more present than I would've expected- a bit toasty and caramelly. Really great taste here.

Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, lingering bitterness, low carbonation. This one is quite drinkable.

This one was completely off my radar. I always love trying beers I've never heard of, and this one was a good surprise.

The beer comes in a rich golden orange color.

The aroma has slight grass, pine, a bit of grapefruit, almost a smokey note from the grain.

The flavor is better of bright floral, lavender, and piney hops. The finish is of sharp spicy and piney bitterness. Still, lacking in flavor and strong bitterness throughout.

No bottle date, but this is probably an old bottle.
