12/21/12 bottled on 11/16, enjoying on 11/27/12
A: Moderate pour yields 1/2 finger white head with fair to good retention. Crystal clear brass/copper liquid. Pretty and practically perfect.
S: Wow. Dank. Orange, tangerine, grapefruit. Allium definitely, pine too. Ever so faint esters. So lushly hoppy! Amazing. Not man-candy, but so good.
T: Bitterness right up front is strong but quickly countered by a robust yet lightly bready malt base with a kiss of sweetness. Savory hop and piney too. Great balance between malt and hop-heavy tending towards the hops.
M: One downside is slight cloying. Bracing hoppiness finishes on the savory side. Breathy alcohol is also a negative.
O: One of the best beers of 2012. A terrific IPA. Glad to get this from Des Moines. I'll definitely drink it when it gets to MI! A testament to the value of freshness in IPAs.
