Popping my review cherry tonight with a great one!
A- Served from a bottle into a local bar's pint glass (the kind you take home from "pint night"). Pours a beautiful light copper with a half finger off-white head. Little to moderate lacing. Good head retention.
S- Wonderful assault of hops (mostly the floral, grapefruit variety) followed by rather strong bready malt. I'm still smelling the bottle 2 hours later as I write this review. Really outstanding!
T- As expected from the nose, although the hops are much more well-rounded and form a more cohesive hop profile. Bitterness is rather low for an "Extra IPA." The malt is also as expected, with a little caramel malt being detected in addition to the bread backbone.
M- Medium to heavy body with rather low carbonation. Slightly sticky. Very good.
O- This is probably my 2nd favorite IPA behind Ninkasi's Total Domination. A very good one, with better smell and drinkability. Pick this one up, you won't be disappointed.
