Bottled on 10/28/11. Poured into Sam Adams perfect pint.
A - Crystal clear brightness, golden with slight amber hues to it. Poured a big rocky off-white head thats been clinging quite a bit to my glass throughout.
S - A really pleasant clean pine scent right up front, not overpowering. Some toasty malts are lingering deep within. Very pleasent.
T - More apparent in the taste are the caramel malts here. They can be a little bit sweet for my liking. A nice hop flavoring, pretty clean tasting. Finishes just bitter enough to let you know it's an IPA.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Didn't finish quite as dry as a great IPA would.
O - I enjoyed this IPA. It wasn't over the top with hops which I appreciate. The malt backbone was lacking a little bit of balance for the beer. Nice clean hops and aesthetically pleasing.
