A- Pours a gorgeously deep amber/ light brown color with a fluffy, light tan head that has a bit of staying power and is leaving some beautiful lacing on my IPA glass.
S- You can really smell the green west coast hops at first with a nice burst of citrus notes, followed by some sweet roasted toffee malt.
T- Wonderfully fresh hop taste to start that then gets taken over by some sweet roasted malt that actually leaves traces of dark fruit, perhaps cherry.
M- Here's where the beer shines. This is right where ya want it. On the heavier side of medium bodied, with a strong alcohol character that has a great presence but is not overpowering.
O- Stellar beer right here! This is a great representation of the style and I cannot wait to try a 2013 again in a few months... or years.
Serving type: 12oz 2013 bottle poured into a DFH/SN IPA glass. Thanks for reading.
