Pour from a 120z bottle. Slightly hazy golden brew with weak white head. Aroma of earth and citrus hops. Taste is light malt with piney hops up front, transitioning to a piney, earthy bitter finish. Palate is thin. Light in body and alcohol but full of taste. Decent session IPA.

On draft at Captain Joes in Whitmore Lake on September 26 with Tara Dye. The pour is a bright golden yellow color with a frothy white head and some decent lacing. Its foggy. The aroma is different. There is a strange dankness to it that I wasnt expecting. For the most part, it smells like someone just threw wet whole cones in there, and waited to see what happened. There is a little pine resin, but for the most part it just smells like damp hops. Not great. The flavor is similar, if not a touch worse. There is a wet pine thing happening, and the wet leaf comes back in greater force. Light resin, and just a dominating dankness. The mouth feel is light and watery, hardly carbonated with a lingeringly messy finish. Like I just pulled some hops out of a barrel of water and sucked on them. Not a fan at all.
