Poured aggressively into a snifter giving way to a clear dark orange/amber body. A thick and creamy looking off-white head falls quickly leaving lacing and retains fairly well until the end.
The smell is full of hoppy goodness. Dank and resinous pine melds well with the peach, cantaloupe, and citrus fruit. Some alcohol vapor.
The flavor hits big with pine and grapefruit flavored hops. The alcohol is detectable but not distracting. There is some balancing sweetness from the malt that comes across a little crackery and bready. But this is really all about the hops.
Fairly big bodied for an IPA. It is smooth and creamy with an all encompassing pleasant bitterness. Dries out the palette and keeps you wanting more.
This feels comparable to the Enjoy By batch I had. A wonderfully big IPA. One bottle is not enough.
