On tap at The Nook in Huntsville, Al.
A: Nice orange, slightly translucent. Finger tall tan head of frothiness that laces the glass quite nicely. This is a inviting looking IPA.
S: Rich citrus and pine all over. Hey, it's a hop bomb, what would one expect? Only the slightest buscuity malt quality can be detected.
T: Bitter bite with a big pine hop splash. Smooths out with some time in the mouth so the malts can do their thing on the finish. No alcohol taste is present.
M: Very creamy, like a big Celebration ale.
D: Bold, with extreme ranges from bitter bite to smooth. Sierra Nevada makes a fine DIPA.
Serving type: on-tap
