bottled on 09/24/14

Pours a clear, dark amber read with a huge, foamy off white head that leaves a billowy top and thick, spotty lacing.

Big, resiny, citric hops. Light caramel malt backbone.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

A very well done IPA. Big, fresh hop character with just enough malt to keep it balanced.

Appearance: Beautiful amber. Excellent frothy head with great retention.
Smell: Pine, light citrus, and some sweetness.
Taste: Pine, malt, bitter and sweet.

Wow. This was unbelievably great. The smell was good, but it was the smooth taste that stole the show. The pine is met with a honey/sweet malty sweetness that just makes you smile. The citrus is more subtle, but it plays a nice role. I'm still blown away by how frothy the head remained. I would drink this every day.
