Notes/Commercial Description:
This IPA sacrifices nothing for its drinkability, flexing big time flavor and complexity. The light color disguises the depth of the malt backbone, a pillar that balances the potent whole-cones of the piney-citrus Cascade and tropical fruit-like Citra hops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. 41 F. 149 13 C-2 0845 S is the bottle code. 3190214:40 is also printed on the bottle. I don't understand why they're both on there.

Pours pretty. Nice, big, creamy, fluffy head, great retention, amber-orange, lots of carbonation. Clear. Smell is very muted. Does the everlasting head act as an aroma cap, preventing aroma from getting out? Anyway, it's muted, but piney, slightly toasty. That's about all I can get. I'll smell it again when the head dissipates. <later> All I get is more pine, but I do get a lot more.

Taste is nicely piney. Lots of bitterness, slightly watered down sweetness.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly still for the amount of carbonation I can see. Slightly creamy, but some sort of odd coarseness. Overall, pretty good.
