Pours three fingers of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and orange. Pretty nice.
The taste is quite piney, a solid dry bitterness throughout. It has a good malt backbone.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a good IPA.

Great pine and hop scents, was limited to the can so I couldn't check the color too well. Light hop flavor with a hint of malt

Bottle. Hops are up front in this brew and overwhelmed the maltiness. It was decent but not great.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all about.
The smell started off with a big burst of citrus hops running over light piney notes and then a slight floral setting balances within.
The taste copied the smell to have a nice bittersweet burst of hops to malts, nicely balanced. A light piney to citrus aftertaste leads into a refined sweet citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right for an AIPA - slightly back to allow the hops to take the lead on the bitterness and harshness on my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

I think it would be tough to find a west coast IPA that is better balanced. Great nose and smooth herbal finish.

Orange pour. Nose and taste are tropical fruit puree, balance of malts and piney hops bring forward the frutiness. PNW IPA’s don’t seem to be my style but this was well done.

Had on tap at Laughing Planet in Portland. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Flavor is a bit tart at first. The flavor then becomes lemony and smooth. Great easy drinking beer!
