Hazy orange with a couple fingers of white head

Smell is orange peel, loads of citrus (seems to be the Ohio IPA theme which is fine by me) A little passion fruit thrown in the finish.

Taste is oranges, lemons, grapefruit, pine resin, extremely fresh tasting hops, a little malt in the finish, a little lemon zest bitterness in the end

Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and a semi dry finish.

Wow is all I can say about this beer. It is refreshing, flavor full and keeps me coming back for more and more... Would have a case at all times if I could get it.

Hazy golden orange body. The head looks super sticky and I just love the webs of lacing it spins down the glass.

Holy hell this beer can be smelled from a foot away. Orange and grapefruit, pine, and sticky icky. It has a sweet tropical fruit balance to the resinous pine.

Oranges and pine, oranges and pine. Very nice play between the two. It has a bready malt balance before breaking into a long and bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is creamy then sticky. It's very soft going down and costs the tongue with sticky residue.

Man, I really dig this IPA and hope to have it again. This beer has its shit together.

No bottled on date. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale orange color with two fingers of white head, pretty large bubbles. Decent clarity, superb retention, and good lacing.

S: Nice mix of resiny pine, biscuit and a little carmel malt, citrus and fruit.

T: Biscuity malt, piney hops, a little white grapefruit and grapefruit peel, mild to moderate bitterness which transitions to a long, smooth, mildly bitter finish. Mostly dry.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Slight crispness.

O: Pretty good IPA, and well enough constructed, but nothing to write home about.

Received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a good sized fluffy white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of lace on the way down. Aromas of grapefruit pine and resin with a slight earthy edge. Malt aroma? maybe? The flavor is lightly bready malt with a light sugar edge. Earthy pine and resin flavor with only hint of citrus. Light hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Very nice IPA, I'm glad I was talked into trying it.
