FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange color with a medium sized soapy off-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was bitter with intense citrus and pine. The flavor was very sweet, tangy and bitter with strong pine, resin and cactus. Very long bitter finish with lingering pine. Moderately full bodied. Very nice.

stchloe (896) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Very solid IPA but nothing crazy, hazy hop profile mostly that PNW blend of pine and citrus with a bit of resin, kind of weirdly sweet and alchy

Back at the brewery in Portland with Z and A, pours a rusty orange color with no head. Nose is deep and intense citrus. Taste is bittersweet citrus with some pine and resin. Finish is bittersweet citrus as well and ends on the same tasting notes with a dry and medium to long ending. Nice IPA . Quaff Score 8 / 10

On tap at Fat Headís in PDX. Piney grapefruity goodness. Incredibly well balanced with hops taking the front seat. I wish all DIPAs tasted like this. Beautiful.
