Had out of the can, purchased fresh from the beer stop in Grand Central Station. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a nice clear golden amber. White one finger head doesn't linger and only sparse lacing remains.
S: Relatively strong. Mostly pine, some grapefruit. Surprisingly lacking in pure hop oil aroma, which I like in my IPAs - a little disappointing.
T: Fantastically balanced. Starts with a nice bready malt that gives way to that wonderful SN pine and a nice amount of citrus. Finishes with a grassy bitterness and a bit of booze. Hints of soap, ash, aspirin - bit of everything. Delicious.
M: Dry and perfectly carbonated; crisp. Not much else to say.
O: SN hits it on the head, as always. A great IPA almost DIPA. I want another just thinking about it.
Serving type: can
