Just a quick review on this one.

Aside from the previously described notes about the cloudy, lacing, etc, my only note is this...

How does it get a 93?? This is a B, B- beer AT BEST. It's got so much potential, and comes off when you taste it like it just isn't there. It's not bad, there is some hop to it, and some pine notes. But overall, it's weak. Much weaker than I expected given the reviews.

A = Crystal clear, great head and awesome lacing

S = Great hoppy bouquet

T = Crisp clean tastes, hoppy, but not overly so

M = Very clean mouthfeel - not a bunch of lingering bitterness typical of IPAs

O = A nice balanced IPA Not a hop bomb. Nicely done!

2014, bottled on 9/24/14, served in a nucleated SN pint.
A - dark orange, almost light brown in color. Nice head and lacing.
S -not much to the nose. A little pine and mango.
T - initial piney, mango and earthy hop flavor. Quite a bit of bitterness on the back end. A little bit of alcohol as well.
F - a lot of carbonation, almost too much. Nice body and mouthfeel - standard SN grain bill.
O - good, solid wet hop IPA. Not quite as flavorful as other wet hop offerings out there, but very good.
