Clear golden pour with a dense white one-finger head. Big piney hop aroma. Taste has pine and grapefruit flavor upfront for a big bitter initial taste. Can also taste a bit of biscuit in the back end. Medium bodied. Finishes with a good lingering pine bitterness.

Growler from the North location.

Appearance: Bright golden glass shows some haze. Second day off the growler the head has died back a bit but is white and laces.

Aroma: West coast citric hops with a candy sweet base supporting the acids.

Taste: Bitter wins out but not by much. Lots of hop flavors, some leafy, some citric, bit of pine, all of it fresh and tasty. The bitter intensity is low enough the malt base doesn't have to be too chewy so this come across as a light and drinkable IPA edging into a hoppy APA. It doesn't go the session IPA route of shorting the base so there is no dryness in the finish making it much more satisfying.

Mouthfeel: Medium to medium heavy body, bit oily with a small chew. Carbonation is a bit low, but again, second day on a growler. Would put it medium on the first half yesterday.

Overall: Yum. Solid IPA, no flaws, nice west coast profile with citric highlights, and enough malt to carry the day. Complimented their awesome pizza well.

From notes:

First beer of the evening. Poured a hazy orange with a light tan head. Distant citrus aroma. Taste has a tame bitterness with a background of malty sweetness. A bit chalky and has an oily end, but tasty nonetheless. Light to medium and pretty dang smooth. This one doesn't have a knock-your-sock-off bitterness, but is great for starters.
