12oz to a snifter, bottled 3 June 2013
Pours a golden orange with a finger of egg shell white head. Strong carbonation stemming from the center of the glass. A little cloudy, about 90% transparency, no visible sediment though. Retention has held up well, not bad lacing. Looks good
Smell is is a nice balance of hops and malts. Orange, citrus, and floral notes make up the hop profile. Malts are sweet, spicy, and bready, just as strong as the hops. Maybe a touch of alcohol, at 5.9% I wasn't expecting to smell much
Taste follows the nose really well- orange and citrus hops with some floral undertones. Strong and robust malt backbone sweet and bready with a touch of spiciness. Again not much alcohol, everything still comes together well
Feel is a nice moderate body, mild carbonation, mild bitterness. Alcohol masked almost completely, crisp and easy to drink
Overall a solid IPA. I definitely prefer American style, but I'm not going to have any trouble finishing this six pack. Cool to have this in Nevada, now we just need to get some BCB
