Pours a golden orange color with a medium head. Aroma has hops up front with some citrus and pine. Taste has grapefruit and resin up front. There is a pepper like spice also that provides a good balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Slater’s 50/50 Anaheim. Light amber/dark orange pour with white foam. Kind of a sticky caramel aroma to this. Lots of pine and resin, sort of herbal as well. There’s some orange zest and pith, too. Flavor is fairly bitter and resinous. Very pine forward. Sticky brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Maybe a bit of booze. Not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a bright orange color with a foamy white head. It has that strong medicinal hop nose. It still has a nice citrus aroma. A fine citrus juicy flavor and mouthfeel. A smooth overall consistency. Quite the unique characteristic in the flavor. It’s a little different. The fruit juice is very prominent. The abv is masked very well. A nice IPA.

Forgot to rate this, but remember it being a nice almost double IPA that was nicely balanced but didn’t have anything that wowed. Will try again when i get the chance and re-rate.

Pint at Ginger Man Austin. Hazy gold amber, good solid white head. Pine nose, blood orange and pithy stuff happening. Taste gives good resin and needle pine mix, light caramel, some spruce, deeper orange notes, grapefruit kick. Fairly juicy orange finish. Pithy and pine bitterness. Booze well integrated. Yeah, decent.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Ed. The aroma is citrusy, pine, floral, American Hop dominated, there is a slight caramel malty note. The caramel is more noticeable in the flavor, citrusy hops and pine notes as well.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Meh... not much aroma. Mediocre taste. I expect more from this style, this ABV, and even this brewery.
