Undated 12oz bottle. Pours a copper color with a finger of tan head. Smells of malt and grassy hops. Smooth feel, slightly sticky. Malt body with moderate piney hops. A good malt-forward IPA.

The appearance has a golden orange colored body that gave a one finger white foamy spotty head that lasted for a good half minute before slowly dieing into the body. Some nice speckled yet spotty lacing appeared and slowly slid into the body. No carbonation was seen rising in the beer. The smell has a strong floral and citrusy aroma to it with some slight maltiness trying to come out, but mostly staying subdued. The taste took these flavorings with a slight bitterness. The palate is about a medium with a decent balance between wet and dry on the tongue. This is a fairly sessionable beer. Overall, I’d be happy to buy this again.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is of pine, good pot. This beer reminds me a lot of my review for Alaskan IPA. It’s a very basic, yet very good example of the style. My favorite Big Sky beer yet out of the variety pack I bought.

Again I don't like IPA'S but I think Big Sky has figured it out. Pours a tea color with little head. Pine smell with a soft hop taste more mellow than most IPA'S. Smooth in the mouth and swallow but still a light hoppy aftertaste.
