On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of malt and caramel. Rich body with flavors of hops, grapefruit, sweet malt and a bit of pine. The finish is resiny hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Good all around.

On tap at Piece. Opaque orange pour with a thin off-white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Tangy orange flavor with some malt and a bitter grapefruit finish that is nicely rounded. Very well executed beer, and it doesn’t surprise me a bit coming from these guys.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Piece seems to have about a dozen IIPAs but they do a good job on all of them so no complaints. Hazy orange color. Filled to the brim so no head but it does leave a good bit of lacing on the side of the glass. Tremendous hoppy nose. My guess is loads of amarillo. There’s lots of sweet orange and a slight floral overtone. Slightly fruity sweet but balanced by a firm earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, esp. for a higher gravity beer, w/ vigorous carbonation to help dry things out a bit. Another nice, fruity hop-accented beer from Piece. They get more attention for their wheats but they do these as well as anyone.

I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. Its dark gold with a hint of orange good retention and lacing. The aroma is superlight for a dipa, a little piney hops, small grapefruit but thats it. The taste is really nice though, super easy to drink and flavorful not overpowering at all. If you want a smooth piney ipa, give this a shot.
