Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Pours semicloudy orange with a small white head. Smells of some citrus and piney hops. Tastes of sweet grain with a nice citrus hop bite. Beer is nicely carbonated, light bodied, light bodied, and easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.

L - pale golden yellow. Clear.

S - not much aroma. Slight lemon.

T - strong lemon rind up front. Dry and hoppy. Bitter crispness. Malty.

F - initially smooth but then lots of foam when swished.

O - pretty aggressively hoppy. Unbalanced.

Impressive, dome-making head which is very slow to recede. It leaves plenty of chunky and webby lace on the glass. The liquid darker gold with a minimal haze.

Harsh, freshly grounded hop come aroma. Very green and floral, it smells like freshly mowed dandelion weeds.

The hop mimics the smell with more fortitude. It's difficult to get a read on the malt (regular pale) because of the strong bitterness, which intensifies during the swallow leaving an extraordinary long-lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Almost astringent and very dry. Overall, this a love-the-hops sorta IPA.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of pine. Nothing mild about the taste. Aggressive hops, pine, resin, some citrus, bitter, a bit unbalanced. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
