COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Very nice appearance and aroma. Mild happy pine taste with a little oiliness in the texture. Overall pretty decent but not top caliber.

Brews n chews. One of the half decent IPAs at the event. Clearish golden pour. Pine like aromas. Medium to high bitterness.

Good pine nose with an orange bitters back note. Slight malt but a hop dominated beer, not a bad thing. Great lingering bitterness which may benefit from some more malt to help the texture.

Popoff91 (80) - Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2016
12-ounce bottles served in a pint glass. Exceptional floral and pine needle aroma, but even more bitter than most IPAs. Hard to finish a six-pack.

BOTTLE. Clean straw to gold colour with small flat white head, solid glass lacing.. Floral musky nose, pine aroma for sure.. Crisp beer, label is 100%; pine & spruce, floral notes, light malt backbone balances out nicely.. Cellarbrations @ Capel

A petty nice pine taste with a bitter hop after effect. Its a nice ipa. Good thick texture.

colui72 (601) - HONG KONG - MAY 15, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Mainly bitter in palate, with grapefruits, pine and hops. Zero sweetness, just a bitter bomb. Maybe too lagerish bitter for my taste,

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2016
Tap at First Draft. Opaque gold with a resinous pine sap/needle aroma you could cut with a knife. Light bodied but man is this bitter and dank. Too bitter for my tastes.

From Brewcraft. Drank the night I lost my card-carrying case on the way back from Ap Lei Chau :( Clear orange-copper, white chunky bubbly head with spidery lacing. Smells of moderately bitter hop, some pilsner malt, faint soapy orange. Taste is mostly just heavy pine resin. Body is very resinous and bitter, watery. Not bad but taste is one-note resin.
