A big, piney aroma. All citrus front with a piney bitterness. A fantastic beer. Not very complex, but very well crafted.

Picked up a bottle at BevMo. Poured a dark golden color, pretty much no head. Aroma was citrusy and fruity, smelled really nice. Flavor was great! Nice and fresh tasting, hoppy and smooth, light carbonation. A well done brew!

Bottle. Nose-big clean citrusy grape, fruity nose. Very nice nose. Taste-milky, medium bitter, watery, all hops with a low ,malt profile. Low palate points because of watery mouthfeel.

22-oz. bomber from FlacoAlto. Pours clear gold with virtually no head, but what is there is patchy white, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (meal, cereal), heavy hops (flowers, grass, soap), average yeast (sweat) with notes of sugar and pears. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and harsh bitterness; soapy hop flavor with trace malt and yeast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, slick texture and metallic finish.

Pour is golden yellow with a thin white head...smell is all pine and resin...taste was chewy and oily with pine, soap, resin...a slight nice residual sweetness that compensated for the herbal nature of the beer...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
bottle: Full aroma of classic signature west coast hop overpowering the nose. All citrus of grapefruit and orange with fresh mosit and danky hops defining the smell in more indepth detail. The same story is described as the flavor which dominates with fresh hop and everything i love in an ipa. Appearance is a golden ale with sediment floating about. Soapy and sticky head.

Bottle courtesy of my man Naven. Pretty pour w/ great lacing. How many PP IPA’s have I tried? Not sure, but this one doesn’t disappoint. Nice hop aroma and grassy/piney hop flavor dominating w/ a tinge of citrus hop flavor. Another great PP beer.
