A- Deep amber hued brew. Decent head that drops into sticky lace.
S- Herbal and tons of hops. Some citrus notes with a hint of spicyness.
T&M- Not full bodied but a big medium. Carbonation is perfect which creates a creamy smooth drinkability. Malt is ignored as hops burst onto the palate right away. Bitter and oily. Malt creaps into the picture just barely and is almost nutty, bread-like and somewhat caramelly. This becomes more pronounced as it warms. Hops are the star of this show with a strong but not over the top performance. Herbal and citrus qualities as well as some flowery moments. Alcohol is barely detectable. Bitternes only builds slightly so you can have more than one, just watch out because that alcohol will sneak up quick.
D- A near perfect IPA. Hoppy without killing your tastebuds and complex enough to keep me coming back for more. I wish this wasn't a seasonal.
Serving type: on-tap
