Pours into an imperial nonic a clear rich copper color with a slight infusion of orange,a thick full one finger white head atop.A mix of floral, pine resin and grapefruit in the nose along with caramel and mild nutty malts,kinda old school here.Wow not a juice bomb on the palate!Resiny and pine-like flavors with mild citric notes with earthy tones in the back end.Is it it 2008 all over again?With this beer it is and I like it,well done.

A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is slightly hazy orange with a 1-finger light ecru-colored head.

S: Nice nose of citrus and pine. An old-school IPA nose.

T: Modest caramel malt and brown sugar foundation, then the hops: earthy, leafy, and pine and pine needles predominantly, with a touch of grapefruit peel.

M: A little chalky. Medium in heft, carbonation is modest.

O: OK. It's semi-local, and the 4-pack was only $8.99, so a solid value. Probably won't come back to it myself, but I wouldn't turn one down if offered.

Can to English pint glass.
The appearance was a soft semi-transparent bronzed light copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a mild pace. Nice semi-clingy spotty sort of lacing ran all around.
The aroma had a strength scent of bitter pine up front trying to run into some citrusy bitter rind but that seemed a bit fainter. Nice equivocal earthiness escapes into some mild breadiness shaping the all around nose.
The flavor embraced the piney bitterness pretty much all of the way through the entire consumption. Some citrusy sweet pulp to rind follows in underneath. Just a touch of the malts, somewhat clean and bready. Aftertaste hits with a nice sly crisp pine to citrusy zestiness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt on par. ABV felt appropriate.
Finish had a touch of stickiness with an absorbent maltiness bringing in the piney harshness.
Overall, it's a pretty nice AIPA that I could have again, definitely more pine than expected.

A-pours an orange copper with with an off white head with average retention and some lacing
S-orange,peach, pine, pear, pineapple, wheat, some biscuit
T-tons of resiny pine, some orange, dry biscuit in the finish, malt provides solid backbone without lending much flavor

O-flavor is a bit heavy on the pine, but not a bad brew. I'll check out some more of their offerings

Poured from a 16oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a dark amber with a thin dense head.

Aroma is a heavy caramel with herbal hops.

Taste is definitely more malt than hops, hops come second as an earthy herbal after note.

More like a hoppy English style old ale than a bright hoppy IPA.
