At the Bruery Tasting. Pours with a large off-white head that leaves great lacing and a hazy amber body. Aroma of pine and citrus with some caramel following. Taste is great with pine hops, caramel, toffee, and a bit of spicy hops on the finish. Light bubbles.

Growler from the Brewpub! Nose is flowery, piney, and citrusy hops; hazy amber with a medium beige head that nicely laced the glass sides; flavor was hops(citrus), hops(pine), and more hop bitterness from the medium body, the hops bitterness lasting to the finish! Excellent IIPA!
