Pours a finger and half of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a rich, sappy pine smell. Nice and bold.
The taste is excellently balanced, moderate to strong pine and lemon bitterness. Good malt profile.
The texture is crisp, medium body.
An excellent IPA.

I do not believe there is an IPA as low as 7.1% ABV that is as good as this one! Had it on tap at the Fall River hotel. I cannot disagree with any reviews so far. Excellent balance, wonderful long-lasting aroma. Possibly it is the terrain in the area that made me like it so much, but others like it elsewhere in a bottle. Later in Burney I had a Fall River IPA on tap that was lower ABV but just as good, which is not listed yet on BA.

My personal favorite brew from Fall River and beer of choice whenever it's on offer. Love the citra hops, a truly great, bold yet balanced IPA. Highly recommended, do not miss this one!

This is a great beer. Got a bomber in a trade, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Dank hop profile and smooth as can be. If I lived in CA I'd drink this stuff regularly. Well done!

Had this beer on tap at CR Gibbs during cool April nights. Wasn't sure what to try and the staff recommended it. New Micro out of the middle of nowhere. Was pleasantly surprised. Again, I very rarely write reviews, but felt this one deserved one since its new to BA.

Appearance: beer was clear, obviously filtered, which is good for new, small micros. It had about a one finger head that left decent lacing in the glass. Carbonation was well, with lots of bubbles visible through the non-hazy pint glass. Color was copper.

Smell: my favorite part of this IPA. A big burst of piney and floral notes and a very strong presence of citrus. Great smelling IPA.

Flavor: flavor followed the nose with a very strong pine and citrus hop flavor, however the beer was surprisingly not bitter at all. In fact, I am rating it a little lower for not being bitter enough. Lots of hops, with the taste of a little caramel malt. Very good.

Mouthfeel: again, it was a little watery or thin. I think a few more IBU's would make the beer seem fuller bodied along with a touch more malt for balance. Still a very easy drinking pint, I'm splitting hairs here.

Overall: a very good IPA. Congrats to this new brewery, the people sitting next to me seem to be enjoying as well.
