Dimmly bright golden hay color with a small crown of light beige foam that sits for a bit before it sits a sifted skim and some sporatic lacing.
Quite a hoppy nose with lots of woody bitterness of cedar pine, strong floral notes that are quite cannibus-like, and a bit of orangeyness.
Wow, this has got some hops to it...um...duh. A Dbl. IPA from SN with mucho hops, yes please. Very biting from the get go with a twisted pine-sided woodyness, alot of pale malt dullness underneath, parching white grapefruit, puffs of tangerine, and some of that floral hoppy touch as it completely and comfortably wraps the palate in a tight bittered drying effect of buzzing pithy hops. Excellent hop complexity to this SN Beer Camp brew.
Mouth buzzes with lots of hoppy things as it settles in with a soft fluffy texture within a bold medium body. Wonderfully wholesome and hop dazzling.
Damn hoppy and yummy stuff! A hophead must try.
