12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint.
A - Hazy light amber color to it. The light tan head was small even from a vigorous pour.
S - Citrus hops right away but with a flowery smell to it. Slight touch of biscuity malt floats in the background.
T - Malt holds up well and is found throughout the whole flavor. Hops come in midway with a prickly piney flavor. Bitterness is mellow and rounded avoiding sharpness. Finishes pretty dry with hops lasting for a short while into the aftertaste.
M - Medium body, medium-light carbonation, semi-dry to dry.
O - The beer has a nice balance between hops and malt for an IPA. Head was a little disappointing. Smell lacked a little bit of pop to it, but a pleasant hoppy flavor to it. I would definitely drink this beer again but not necessarily seek it out.
