Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass.
A classic orange amber body, slightly opaque if maybe a hint of haze. Lots of sticking cola bubbles out of the pour which is a bronze gold, but then gives to small cola carbonation. Head makes barely two fingers, it struggles to reach it. But settles to a thin collar. Otherwise alright.
Nose has a nice muted and airy sense of pine scent, and a good mix of citrus zest grapefruit and orange. A real light crisp character. Quite refreshing. It comes off as weak, but for a light session bodied IPA this is right on target.
Quite effervescent and a sense of carbonation on first sip. Palate gives a supper clean finish, and a very big hop blast. Lingering airy pine, even a wet juice mix of mild citrus and a hint of dirt. Clean yet dirty. Orange juice, but with a big bitter hop pine punch on the finish. Lingering hop blast that goes on and on.
It's big, but it is not. It's bold but light. It's truly a session able IPA. I call it a hop head brew I could drink all day indeed.
