Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
S - Citrus peel, pine, grassy with some malt sweetness.
A - Relatively clear, deep amber with a 2 inch, pillow-like, off-white head with excellent lacing all the way down the glass.
T - Strong earthy bitterness upfront but not overpowering. Hop flavors are a combination of earthy/piney/peppery with a slight caramel malt backbone. A hint of booze emerges as it warms. Pine lingers on the palate with a relatively dry finish.
M - Medium carbonation. Moderate body.
O - Definitely a drinkable session IPA. Hop flavor dominates with very little malt character, but no distinguishable flaws. A solid IPA, but nothing overly spectacular.
