  • Another cool label. I am not a tree hugger, but I always enjoy seeing a tree with character, weathered and worn, twisted and crooked, trees like this have something special.....just like this beer.

    Pours a hazy deep gold, with a nice one inch head. Medium retention, with nice lacing.

    Aroma is sweet with citrus hops and maybe a hint of grapefruit. Very pleasant.

    Taste is sweet at first and works its way into a hopppy citrus with a bit of bitterness that reminds me of eating grapefruit. Nice malt on the back end that gives this beer a perfect balance.

    Really solid beer here. Very refreshing and enjoyable. Love the balance between the citrus hops and the malts. It's a winner!

  • Poured cloudy with two inches of off-white, slightly frothy foam. Good retention with nice, sticky, web like lacing.

    Aroma is awesome hops. Pine and citrus hops smack your nostrils with their goodness while floral notes are on the back side. There is a pleasant sweetness that bounces around for balance.

    Taste is a comfortable infusion of pine with grapefruit and floral having a side job. The sweetness is there once again for balance. Floral is in the finish, not bitter, but also aroma lingers. Awesome.

    Medium carbonation with similar carbonation.

    This is a very drinkable beer. The balance is almost hard to believe until you try it. One of the better ipas I have had the pleasure of tasting. Enjoy!
