12 oz bottle
A: A very nice dark orangish amber color. Poured into pint mug. Unfiltered. I can see the goodies in it. Nice lacing after the head recedes. The lacing is not really sticky. Tiny tiny bubbles across the surface with a few big ones popping up. Looks great!
S: Nice smell with the fresh hops hitting my nose first and followed by balancing malt. In the middle are some citrus notes and a tiny amount of bread.
T: Fresh hops. Nice since I love hops. The flavor is one of the most balanced I have experienced for an AIPA. Finish is a very nicely done hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue.
M: Feels nice and creamy with the hop bite well balanced out with the malt background.
O: I love this beer. This year is the first I have had it and I hear 2012 was one of the best. I plan to stock up on this beer to see how it evolves. If you have not had it, get some, its great for the holidays and colder weather and different than many of the darker stout type beers often presented during this season.
