Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 2013 label the bottle.
Appearance: Transparent amber body with a very thick and fluffy off-white head on top. Incredible sticky lacing throughout.
Smell: Big aroma. Hops stand out. Herbal and citrus notes also are present.
Taste: The hops break through a great base of toasted malts. Notes of citrus really come through in the aftertaste. The alcohol creates a great warming sensation.
Overall: I am normally not a big fan of IPAs in the colder months but this beer is definitely worth breaking the parade of stouts and porters. This IPA contains more herbal-pine flavors than fruity citrus flavors, which makes this a great tasting brew in the winter. The malts are also incredibly tasty. This would be the perfect beer to grab after walking five miles in a foot of snow to cut down a Christmas tree, then dragging said tree back to your cabin.
