Best Before 2/20/13
A: Cloudy, golden-yellow with plenty of sediment floating around. Big, pillowy, frothy, white head. Leaves behind a ton of lace but little retention.
S: Light, fruity hops, bready malt. Inviting.
T: Big, fresh, American hops at the front being balanced by toasted malt at the back. Citrus, pine, all the hop flavors an IPA should have.
M: Fruity, flavorful, balanced, smooth. What more could you ask for?
O: An extremely consistent, well-crafted IPA. Can't beat it. Certainly an "east coast" IPA that has more malt and balance with a very different hop profile. Not a hop heads ideal choice but an easy and well drinking beer nonetheless. Great for when you want hops but not a hop smack. Key to this beer...drink fresh!
