Lemon peel grassy aroma. Some alcohol heat on the palate, very very bitter and a fair amount of hop presence in the flavor and end notes on aroma. Good brew.

Ibrew2or3 (7262) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2014
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
