Smooth and favorable. Subtle notes of pine and citrus and they go down real easy! Deep gold color lights up a snifter with an almost a champagne-like appearance. I believe this one may be way underrated.

I got this off the single shelf at Kroger in Dayton near Metro sports. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had dank hop with pine presence. The taste was slightly bitter with some pine and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

the idea of a winter ipa is intriguing to me, i always thought it would mean more malty, maybe some rye in there, or more crystal richer malts, but in the few i have had this winter season, that doesnt really seem to be the case, although i would argue that winter ipa as a style is still very much open to interpretation, and this really settles nothing to that end. pretty golden in color and just off clear, there really doesnt seem to be anything too distinct about the malt base of this, despite my expectations. its wheat colored, and it has that smell as well, but its simple and light, crackery, and way behind the hops. the hops are great, both fruity and piney in aroma and flavor, northwestern in bitterness and overall intensity, oily too, but then i get a tropical complexion with notes of white grape and pineapple too, honey, orange zest, and even candy. its really dramatic, and its really good, a little more pungent in smell than taste, but delicious and fresh. it feels a little wheaty, slightly richer but not sweet at all, fluffy and extending, some pils malt european character too. a very drinkable ipa, troegs has always had a really nice handle on the hoppy stuff, and this is a tasty new one. id crush a sixer of these, even though nothing about it seems particularly wintery to me...
