Appearance is a slightly cloudy amber. Pours a nice thick creamy head... excellent head retention. Aroma is a bit piney, some orange peel thrown in. Fresh hops.
Taste- More bitter than last year? A slight caramel in the background leads into a whirlwind of hoppy goodness. Orange rinds. Bitter melon... Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness that is very much welcome on this palate. Any more would be swaying on too much, however.
Medium body to this IPA. Quite drinkable. The dry finish makes you want more.
Overall just as good as I remembered, and maybe more bitter than I remembered... this is one of my favorites.
