06/08/05- Purchased at Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA
Presentation- 12oz undated bottle poured into my Moose Drool pint glass.
Appearance- Darker golden pour with a small 1/2 inch head that evaporates soon after. Leaves nice lacing behind though.
Smell- Touch of pine and woodsy notes. A slight bit fruity, but mainly that outdoorsy forest smell.
Taste- Good mixture of malt and hops. One of the more bitter pine hops I have tasted which balances out well with the amount of malt. A bit of citrus in the finish, but primarily pine hops flavor.
Mouthfeel- Average carbonation, smooth drinking IPA.
Drinkability- One of the upper eschelon of IPA's. Nicely balanced and tasty.
