On tap (isnít available in bottles), pours amber with nice soapy suds, smells of fir trees, and sweetness. Tastes like pine cones, chronic, and beautiful bitterness. Great hop presence and all around body.

This is available in quite a number of locations in Humboldt County, and is developing quite a following. I get it often at Brick and Fire Bistro, just a few hundred feet from the back gate of my property. This color in the glass is a very clear orange- amber, raises a good white head and leaves light lacing rings. The nose is intense, full of grapefruit and pine. The body is medium and the mouthfeel very clean and satisfying. The flavor is aggressive, with lots of the citrus and pine, but there is tropical fruit there as well. The finish is dry and bitter, but it is also flavorful right down to the last drop. There are a lot of good IPAís brewed here locally, but this one tops them all with its rich flavors and exceptional balance.
