Poured from an undated bottle. The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a one-finger thick head leaving nice lacing. The smell is citrus forward with a little pine and malt underneath. The taste is a muddled with slight citrus and pine along with a solid malt backbone. The mouthfeel is thick as slightly oily. Overall, this is decent but it lacks a lot of distinct character and flavors I prefer.

Slightly hazy deep gold with a surprisingly tight head. Subtle flower honey on the nose; pretty delicate with a little malt and a little pine. Malt up front on the taste that gives way to sticky resin, brown sugar orange. Initial flavors disappear quickly and leave resin on the back of the tongue. Tight sharp carbonation leads into a slightly coating finish that lingers. A complicated beer that really grows on you and gets better. Thanks Jesse!

L: dark gold color, thin white lacing & head
S: citrus, i'm thinking mostly grapefruit, possibly lemon
T: grapefruit, hint of something floral as well. bitter, but a little less than expected for an IPA
F: medium body & carbonation

Not bad. I enjoyed it, but won't go out of my way to buy it again.
