Bottled on 12/6/11

A: Pours a nice hazy amber colour. 3 fingers of pillowy white head with real good retention and lacing.

S: I'm getting a nice even balance of piney and citrusy hops and bready malts.

T: Very true to the nose except a little more hop forward. Starts off with some citrus and finishes with a big piney hop flavor. Just enough malt backbone for my tastes. Finishes dry and bitter.

M: Nice lively carbonation. Crisp and medium bodied.

Overall this a very nice IPA. One of my favorite SN offerings. A more pine forward IPA with a nice blend of citrus and malt.
