Poured into a snifter. Moderately hazy amber-orange color with a one-finger white head. The smell was malty up front - sweet with some orange and pine. Taste followed - too sweet and malty for my liking. Some nice piney and earthy bitterness, but this was overshadowed by the malt. The beer was canned 8 weeks ago, so maybe I will revisit a fresher offering.

Like drinking a tasty pine tree! Nice frothy head, LOTS of hop aroma. Smooth feel and lingers at the back of the throat just enough to keep me wanting more. Great job on this one.

Old school ipa with a lot of caramel and pine hop resin. Eat Coast Ipa all the way.

Pours golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is citric and pine with some grainy malt foundation. Starts off nice, but kinda falls apart in the very end. Flavor is citric with some breadiness, and quite bitter pineyness, but falls apart midstream where things seemd to get jumbled and indistinct with a soapiness to the flavor. Medium bodied, active mouthfeel. Overall, this beer is a bit of a mess. If they could dial things in they have the making of a nice IPA here. As is though, I wouldn't order it again until I know they fixed its technical flaws. Perhaps the issues were just for the specific batch I tried

On tap poured into small pint glass

A: fluffly head caramel and a darker Amber Hued beer

S: malty a little hit of resiny hops a little bit of citrus too

T: citrusy but then a lot of malts and some resin

M: mediumish feel

O: this is a great beer but if you go into expecting a bright citrus beer the maltiness will surprise you
