12 ounce bottle; gift from a friend.
Pours a moderate copper, slightly cloudy & chill hazed. A nice medium sized head sits atop, well formed and pretty.
Aroma is definitely a west coast hop profile, sharp but fruity (citrus galore).
Flavor- a strong bready malt sandwich slice (chewy rye bread, to be precise) overlain with a vegetal piney sharp dollop of hop needles. At first, a bit overpowering and off-putting, but after a few swallows, mellows fairly well, even if the hops dominate.
Enjoyable, not sure I think of this as a classic west coast IPA, but a nice offering worth trying.
