A - Cloudy gold with a bright bubbly cap that faded rather quickly to a soapy-looking ring. Only a touch of lacing.
S - Pineapple, pine, freshly cut hay. Very nice and fresh smelling.
T - The fruity pineapple/citrus pops up first followed by a rush of bitter hops that are assertive, but fades to a bit of sweetness and tang.
M - Becomes more creamy as it warms, but it's got that prickly carbo-fizz happening and is quite refreshing.
D - The high ABV detracts a bit but this is more than an enjoyable IPA. If paired with spicy food this might be a real winner to keep around.
