Aroma is citrus, pine and mild caramel malts. The flavor is citrus, pine needles, grapefruit, malts and a very dry/bitter finish.

Draft at Keg Creek. Amber color with a nice amount of carbonation. Aroma shows me plenty of caramel, light earthy pine hops. Just maybe a hint of floralness.
Honestly, a very classic example of a single IPA. With the roughly 6 percent it has a nice citrus and pine profile. The Casacade and Chinook speaks out to me in this brew. Bitterness is not abrasive and it really is a IPA that was brewers made 20 years ago. I love the fact that this is a classic example, I enjoyed this!

Light orangish IPA. Not particularly on the bitter side. A decent session IPA. Jess and I tried it at the Gridiron Garage in 2015.

on tap-thin offwhite head with trailing lace. A-pine, med malt. T-resin hops with some bite, med malt-caramel. Was close to a 3.8, by the end of the pint, a still enjoyable 3.6

Qualifier: I don't like IPAs. But it smells like a weed patch and tastes like poison ivy. Not good at all. Nice caramel color though...
