Great brew I received in a trade recently. Awesome color accented with a wreck-your-palate-like taste. Wicked hoppy and aromatic. Wish this brewery distributed to my state.

22oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is initially a strong herb and grass presence that fades into fruit stripe gum and other bright, sweet juicy tangerine and grapefruit notes with some mango. Late in the drink, the aroma turns to caramel as the fruit fades. It pours a brilliant amber with a slightly off-white, big foam head that has good retention and lace. The taste is a blend of Medium fruity sweet and a high, waxy bitter end with a light touch of sour. The texture is that of a heavy oil with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium full, bitter grapefruit rind and grass body with light notes of toast interspersed. The finish is crisp with a strong bitter pine and fruit crescendo that's quick to clean leaving a fresh pine and spice along with a light bitter waxiness that lingers lightly and isn't cloying. The aftertaste is long but light with notes of bread crust and wax.
