Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice crystal clear deep gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up big inviting citrusy – pine resiny smelling hoppiness… yummy, I can tug on this all day long. The taste is rich and deep and attains a pleasing balance where there are resiny pine hops and a mix of bitter tangelo and grapefruit citrus hops that are dominating the experience. I do get an under current of juicy citrusy hoppiness creating just the right amount of balance. This gets a little softer into the finish as a little bit of malt sweetness percolates to the surface amid big bruising hoppy goodness. This is just delicious.

Growler from friend, pit stop at friends house, unreal smell! I love pine line pine that is, desert oak sand fantastic. Then it fall a little short. Taste way too bitter, would have liked more fresh gassy hop flavor pallet lean. Nothing left after initial goodness

Drinks like a regular ipa in some ways but had the abv, sweetness and hop profile of a double. Very good citrusy ipa, big on floral and orange aroma. Some grapefruit in there and the flavor as well. Adequate bitterness balanced by the sweet. Really nice 1st brew from RC. Lived up to the name."

blipp (6278) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Citric and grassy bitter hops, light sweet malty notes, and a hint of booziness. Good, but not as good as some of the other IPAs these guys make.
