This is this years release, suprised no one's reviewed this before, heard rave reviews from locals

Pours amber/caramel with 3+ fingers of rocky sand colored head. Good head very good head retention & pretty good lacing

S: Huge pine & citrus notes

T: Piney & citrus hops in your face.Bready & fruitty notes follow. Earthy hops dominate along with dryness as this warms. 5 or 6 different hops in this beast to include perle & amarillo & it shows. Finishes piney, grapefruitty, bready, & slighltly warming. Resins just lambast your throat in a good way

MF: Medium bodied, low carbonation & great balance.

Drinks very easy for the abv, if you don't like hops stay away! This one is a keeper

Had this one on tap yesterday at the Bristol Brewing Company in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Not a particularly pleasant smelling ipa, with a bit of hops and nothing much else. Medium bodied, with flavors of light malt, caramel, and citric hops. Not a good beer.
