Pours a foggy gold with a white head and lacing. The taste and aroma are both very piney. There are some citrus flavors as well, but they are not as strong as the pine and bitter flavors. Pretty light bodied as well. Overall, a pretty good beer.

Pretty good IPA. A little bitter but not bad at all.

12 oz. can poured into a plastic cup.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Big off white head. Nice foamy surface.

Smell - Floral with some citrus. Big biscuit and toast malt. Sweet smelling.

Taste - Floral hops have turned to grapefruit. Malty. Not really sweet, but toasty. A little creamy. Bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Creamy with medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Average IPA with some unimpressive characteristics.

Pours a slightly hazed bronze with 2+ fingers of ivory colored head. Insane lacing & great head retention, some floaties

S: Slight breadyness, even fainter citrus

T: Breadyness, mango, pomelo, a little dryness up front. More breadyness, a little dryness, a little pineyness as this warms, some mango. Finishes a little dry, with a bit of mango, some grapefruit, plus some grapefruit pith

MF: Light/medium body, slight carbonation, pretty good balance

Drinks easy, just got better as this warmed, well worth a go
