A- pours a deep orangey hue with a chunky, off white head. S- hop forward, pine, sweet malty scent T - lots of pine up front rounded out by caramel notes and a lingering residual bitterness. M - fairly thick and slightly less carbonated than I would have liked. D - very impressive brew from a brewery that is new to me. Will definitely have to seek out more of their beer.

>> Thanks brokensail for the share. Clear golden orange pour, good foam. Nose is sticky candies, vegetal, sweet potatoes. Taste is dusty, papery, gristy grain and whole wheat bread crust. Harsh palate, cracker, super dry papery. Eh.

On tap at Zeitgeist, pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of pine, floral hops, and crackery, biscuity malt. Flavour is very fruity and piney, with notes of light fruity notes, piney and floral hops, and some zesty notes. Wonderfully balanced and brewed IIPA, with a nice astringent, zesty finish. Excellent IIPA.

On tap @ City Beer. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, and pine hops. Some sweet caramel, a touch of pineapple, and a hint of onion. Flavor is fairly bitter with some sweet caramel notes throughout. A lot of grapefruit and orange. Fairly pine forward, light onion, and hints of tropical fruit.

On tap at City Beer. Wow. This was very impressive. It pours a golden color with a creamy white head. The aroma is incredible with huge tropical fruit, gooseberries, mango, pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor is full and creamy with grapefruit and pine with some white grape and a bit of diesel bitterness in the finish. Very bitter in fact. Great full body without a hint of caramel sweetness. This one is right up my alley except for the punishing bitter finish. They could have gone a little more subtle there. Still awesome though.

Fresh growler shared at a BBQ. Pours a deep burnt orange color with no light coming through. Very cloudy and murky with a nice soapy head sitting on top. Nice big aroma of citrus, pine, some hay, grass and sweet malts. Flavor is impressive, with a big blast of grapefruit, mango, resins and more pine. Lots of accompanying bitterness balanced by a big malty body. Malty caramel sweetness, a little toasty. You can feel the high ABV on this one, but the taste is very good. After taste of sweetness and pine, very nice mouth and great carbonation. A really nice surprise IPA from a small town. Unfortunately the brewery wasn’t open in time for me to check it out, but nice breakfast joints are around.
