COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Cloudy golden color. Big piny vegetal hop aroma. A little malt in the flavor but the hops are big and bitter. Nice beer but a little on the bitter piny side for me.

Strangebrewer (1309) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
bottle. Poured hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma full of piney hops. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Pale malt, a bit corny and buttery with a punch of fresh leafy hops, bitter citrus peel and tart throughout.

3.4
Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2017
Bottle. Light fuzzy white head that mostly disappeared. Light cloudy yellow color. Aroma of pine, grape, fruit, grain, caramel. Medium body with a light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering bitter citrus finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tfontana (976) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle pour. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with fair retention and trace lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, light resin. Taste is pine and citrus dominating over resin. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation and bittersweet finish. Overall, nice focus on flavor and good secondary characteristics.

Pinedrops IPA: It tastes like an oily slice of Hawaiian pizza doused in Frank’s Red Hot.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2017
Golden, hazy. Pine, loads of it, golden malts, resin. Fairly fresh. Big bitterness, very clean, lasting aftertaste. An honest ipa. (33cl bottle at Caroline’s in Berkeley)

vipinvelp (4430) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Light hazy yellow, off-white lacing foam head. Nice hoppy aroma, bitter taste. Some tree - forest note. OK. (Galveston 201705)

3.3
olio (10286) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2017
355 ml bottle @ home. BBE 10.05.2017.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Aroma has mandarin and mild hops, some pine needles, caramel notes, mild malts and pineapple. Flavor is somewhat juicy fruity with pineapple and mandarin, sadly the age shows a bit with subtle cardboard notes, some malt bitterness on the finish, faint resin. Not very fresh with the hops anymore but otherwise a decent fruity IPA.
