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.

Pours a darker yellow almost red color. Super duper piney smell. Very unique smell beyond the normal IPA smell. Very hoppy taste on the front end. Get a ton of pine and a little fruit. There is something there that I don't get with other IPAs. Easy finish and a smooth taste all the way through. I really enjoy this one and I don't get to have it that often.

Look: Deep golden honey with a super aggressive white head

Smell: super dank smell. Getting pine, honey, grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime, and sweet malt on the finish.

Taste: Huge hop punch at the beginning. Getting pine, lime, lemon, tangerine, pineapple, more pine, kiwi, honey, and sweet malt with pine on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with mild carbonation. It's really smooth but sticky and resiny. Hop bitter bite rounds it out with a dry finish that lingers on the tongue. Alcohol is just barely there.

Overall: Solid IPA. Nothing revolutionary but a solid pick up if your in the mood.
