This is a fun, strong hop-rush. Tons of pine and citrus rind up front with a long resiny finish. The malt tastes very repressed -- not much sweetness or roastiness. Would buy again!

Can > Mason Pint

A - Hazy light amber with two fingers of dense frothy off white head, thick lacing.
S - Tons of pine, some light floral notes, very dank and resinous, some sweet orange juice in there, grapefruit, bread malt.
T - Massive bitterness, lots of pine and grapefruit, citrus bite, orange, malt doesnt really make an appearance as much as the onslaught of bitterness, but its good stuff.
M - Very mild feel outside of the bitterness, there's a little malty chewiness to it, but the alcohol doesnt make a large presence as well.
O - Good stuff, glad to have picked up a 6 of it.

Smells fruity and piney.

Tastest citrusy, SUPER piney, bitter. A kick in the teeth of hops. With a resiny, sticky finish that lasts FOREVER like an awesome American IPA should. It reminds me of Stone Go To IPA with a little more body. Pardon my Stone reference, but I've been trying to find an IPA like Go To and this is the closest one yet. LOVE it.
