Poured from a 16 oz can into DH IPA glass.

A: Golden hue. Tons of rising effervescence. Giant, fluffy, frothy, white head. Settles very slowly and craters unevenly. Lots of dry, sticky lacing.

S: Floral hops, lemon and grapefruit citrus, and pine resin.

T: Steely hop bite.

M: Bitter and moderately heavy body. Steely finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is really nice. Lots of effervescence, large head, and plenty of dry, sticky, lacing. Nose is floral, with citrus, and pine resin. Hoppy and steely. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Pint can into pint glass. Well I just learned my pint glass isnt really a pint glass. I guess I knew that already, but I didnt want to admit it to myself. No matter, my wonderful girlfriend has mailed me real glasses from our favorite brewery in Montana (Carter's) so problem solved as of later this week.

This beer is reaaaallly good. For the first time in my drinking career (75ish microbrews), I disagree with the style its claiming to be. An IPA I feel it is not. However, I follow my tongue and not a particular style, so I rate this beer highly. Maybe more of an ESB similar to what Redhook puts out? Either way, check it out, love the pint can too.
