Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange in color and a lovely, white, frothy head with decent retention (that eventually subsides) and strong lacing. Aroma is floral with pine and tropical fruits and a hint of bubble gum. Taste follows the nose quite well. Sweet, buttery malts up front with a pine and citrus hop climax (having a hard time identifying specific flavors -- cantaloupe?) towards the swallow. There's a bit of an herbal, tea flavor in the mix as well. Finishes bitter with lingering lemon peel and candy malts. The mouthfeel is excellent. Medium bodied with smooth, zesty carbonation and a good amount of chewiness. It isn't overly heavy or thin. Overall a pretty complex and quaffable IPA that goes down pretty easy at 7% ABV. I've heard good things about Pinthouse and this one didn't disappoint, even if it was a bit spendy.

16oz canned 9-30-20, purchased at the South Lamar location 10-5-20. Opened 10-31-20.
2+ finger off-white head, some over the rim of the glass. Dense, creamy foam with a fine bead.
Orange-gold and fully opaque. Full, thick and sticky lacing.
Citrus, stone fruit, weedy green, and light pine.
Zesty citrus, peach, and melon. Big punch of green, weeds and pine...maybe some wild onion as well.
Medium body, soft mouthfeel, low-medium carbonation. Zesty, medium length off-dry finish.
Very Good, close to Outstanding.

Had it from tap at the brewery. Poured into a an English pint. Bright hazy yellow color with creamy white head and excellent lacing. Nice citrus smell with melon. These follow into the taste. Mellon, cantaloupe. Good taste, somewhat dry. Went great with the pizza!

On tap at Pinthouse Pizza in Austin, TX.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden orange, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like orange, melon, heavy pine and fruit cocktail.

This is a nice NE-ish style IPA, but with a nice resinous piney bitterness. There’s candied orange, fruit cocktail, melon rind, etc. There’s basically no malt character, and it’s balanced well.

This is crisp, clean and very drinkable, with a good level of carbonation.

This is probably my favorite beer from these guys.

On-draught @ Pinthouse.

A bit imbalanced, tending too bitter - especially in the finish.

Slightly thin as well.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

***
03/24/18 impression:

Good flavour duration, with hop flavours lingering long past the finish into the aftertaste. NeoClassic hop profile (who can assail Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic these days!?).

Powder soft mouthfeel. Smooth, wet, refreshing.

Vague citrus from Citra is there, subtle blueberry from Mosaic is there, and vague tropical fruit bounces around. No yogurty tang or onion from Simcoe.

Balanced and enjoyable, but its hop flavours could be deeper, fuller, more pungent, and better defined.

Rather drinkable.

B- / WORTHY

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is very mild. Lacing is good. Phenomenal aroma. Strong citrus and piney. Very good taste. Fresh citrus. Piney but lower on bitterness. Still a good amount. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
