650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper-amber color with a big white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is spicy and salty with a mild pine kick. The taste is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, thyme, salt, pepper, sweet caramel, toffee and marshmallows. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter pine. Overall: Nice IPA but the malt base is a bit muddled. .
