Bottle from chase, thanks! Pours clear amber, aroma is heavy pine, resin hops. Taste is bitter but not overwhelming so, real nice for the hopheads. Very light malt backbone, just enough though.

Received in a BIF from a generous Minnesotan. Consistent, with just enough resiny flavor. Nothing bites or smells over the top, but I guess that is consistent with a Northwest Style IPA.
