look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Slightly hazy ruby red with a big two-finger frothy white head that retains wonderfully throughout. Some fine lacing as well.
S - Big, fresh hop nose consisting of piney, floral, grapefruit, and some herbal. Perhaps some faint underlying lighly toasted malt. Smells good.
T - Mildly sweet in the front but quickly moves into a pleasantly strong bitterness with a lot of the notes from the nose, most notably piney, grapefruit, even a hint of spicy. Big hop flavor.
MF - Medium-full in body, but not heavy. Pretty drinkable, ample carbonation, and smooth mouthfeel. Nice bitter dry finish.
O - A nice IPA for winter, that sort of works. Smells, tastes, feels nice. A good change of pace from the maltier cold-weather brews.
