A: A light copper with good clarity. The head is long lasting, off-white with mostly compact bubbles that leave soem thick lacing on the glass.
S: It's like opening a bag of fresh hops having very strong citrus and pine hops aroma and some herbaceous notes from the fresh hops. There is a light malt aroma under there having a bit of clean malt sweetness and some caramel and biscuty notes. The yeast is a fairly clean American ale style.
T: Aggressive hops bitterness and strong hops flavor take center stage on this one and just enough malt for support. The hops flavors are again citrus with some pine. The malt is again just enough to support the hops. The balance is very bitter. A dry finish with a lingering hops bitterness aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied with moderately-strong carbonation.
O: This has been a favorite IPA of mine every since I was introduce to good beer. It's an outstanding IPA that bring a lot of hops flavor and bitterness to the glass while letting you through back a few.
