An amazing blend of pine, citrus and hops to create a layered and complex flavor array

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Fog City Diner. Colour...cloudy, deep gold with a thick white head. Nose...big, heady, musty/musky hops with hints of pine forest floor. Palate...Massive, broad in the beam and robust, with heavy duty hops that lean towards dry bittering and spruce pitch. The entire palate is quite bitter and the finish is very long.

On tap for beer week! Aroma is citrus hops. Poured dark, like dark copper, diminishing head with little lacing. Flavor is great. Very bitter but good malt balance. Very good ipa! Palate is medium bodied and finishes sort of dry, very drinkable.

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.

"Very nice showing from a relative unknown. Huge pine sap hop aroma with a hint of dank weedy hops and honey sweetness. So hoppy the abv is irrelevant. Nuce brew!"

Big grapefruit nose, big grapefruit flavor full bodied and rich mouth feel. Definitely a repeater.

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.
