Two weeks old, poured into my teku...

A - Dark orange, hazy with a fluffy one finger, frothy head. Sticky lace remains throughout consumption

S - Pine, malts, bread, biscuits, orange zest, citrus

T - Much of the same as the nose except the citrus notes take over. Orange and lemon come to the forefront with a piney, slightly bitter aftertaste

M - Mild carbonation, medium feel, creaminess, hops, awesome

O - A damn fine IPA. Deserves the accolades it gets but it's just a step behind PTE in my opinion. Not as complex and little more sessionable as well when compared to the former. This is one I would go to all the time if it was available here. Well done!

Bottled 1/16/14

Poured into a snifter with a white one finger head. Crystal clear yellow/orange appearance. Nose is very balanced between hops and bready malts. Taste follows suit. This is my first time with this beer and i'm impressed. Very balanced with a bitterness lingering on the tongue that leaves me wanting more. Could drink this all day.

growler shipped to me by a friend from San Fran.

A: a slight haze on a bright orange body. creamy frothy head. good retention and lacing.

S: pine, hop resins, smells a little like ganj. a mild citrus. cactus. melon fruit.

T: a little touch of garlic. pine and resinous. finish turns into a minor malt balance, little bit of caramel, followed by a bitter bite. dry. the pine is definitely the big player on the body for me.

M: carb is moderate, body is light/medium.

D: across the board a good beer for me. this is one of those IPA's that could pass for a pale ale, or at least where the style is going these days. good brew, easy drinking.
