Served in a perfect pint glass
A - It is a lovely amber color with soft orange highlights. The three fingers of off-white head are rocky in appearance and have some staying power.
S - I get some citrus, caramel malt. I also smell some wet grass which is interesting.
T - The taste is a lot more bitter than the smell suggests. I'm assuming some citrus or something else would come through if this beer were fresh. I do get a little caramel malt, but the bitterness is overpowering.
M - It is kind of thin for an IPA and lower in carbonation than expected.
O - This beer is all bitter. That is not my favorite approach to an IPA. I doubt I would like it much better fresh. I am impressed that it held this much flavor for a fall seasonal IPA.
