Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Nice deep copper hue, with a fluffy three-finger eggshell colored head. Rings of lacing. Definitely a good looking brew.
S - Powerful aroma of piney, resinous hops. Some caramel malts as well.
T - Taste follows the nose, with assertive hops forward, supported by a toasted cracker-like malt. Hops are floral to the point of sprucey, with a hint of mint coolness. A little alcohol bite detectable in the finish. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness blend seemlessly in every sip.
M - Medium bodied and carbonated. Drying finish. Works well with the flavor profile.
O - A really good and balanced IPA. I found the hop profile to have a little too much pine for my personal taste. (I prefer a little more citrus in my IPA's). But again, a solid product here.
