My Bottom Line:
This grassy India Pale Ale expands its resins onto the palate, as grapefruit juice rides lightly caramelized cereals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the misty orange-hued blond.
-Resinous bitterness is powerful but pleasant.
-This is an IPA for conifer lovers.
-The mouthfeel is very comfortable.

ajnepple (6139) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Clear, light bronze appearance. Hoppy aroma of zesty citrus fruits, pine, resin and light floral notes. Similar flavor, mostly dominated by a medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body with a light dry finish. Nice.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Arizona Wilderness, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out a good mix of piney and resinous hops upfront, with a subdued dry biscuity malt backbone. Flavour is along the same lines, with loads of piney and resinous hops upfront, followed by dry biscuity malt. Balanced well, clean and with loads of depth. Excellent by-the-books American IPA.

SG111 (1654) - New York, USA - JUL 25, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 Tap at the source. Pours deep golden, but clear. White ring of lacing. Aroma is orange, tangerine, bit of dankness, a nice caramel malt note. Flavor is kinda malty, almost smokey, orange, orange rind, spot of caramel. Tougher to describe. It?s ok. Flavor is not as good as I?d like.

Crowler (1 L) shared at tasting. From kbudd19, huge thanks! About 5 weeks old when opened. Clear orangey-amber with small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is a bit bland but theres the usual suspects with pine, citrusy notes, mild malt spiciness/pepperiness, hints of caramel and honeyed notes. Taste is much better featuring a pretty nice honeyed cereals backbone backed in a delicate way by grass, resin, mild citrusy notes, fresh bread and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Honeyed finish. The aromatics hops probably have faded but the rich honeyed malts delivers a rich taste and a pretty nice mouthfeel making the beer super easy drinking. The alcohol is well hidden. Tasty.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of fruity, piny and peppery hops. Taste is of light perfume or maybe soap is a more appropriate word, moderately sweet and lightly sugary. Body and carbonation are medium and mouthfeel is oily or maybe syrupy even. A good IPA but that doesnt say much nowadays.
