A - A truly beautiful beer. Ever so slightly hazy to let you know that this is indeed filled with hop resin. Golden honey colored. Poured into a tulip glass with about a 1 finger head, doesn't stick around for too long but leaves great lacing.
S - Zesty citrus notes up front...lemon peel, over-ripe orange, maybe a little pineapple. Followed up with a nose clearing piney/resinous note. As the beer warms you get a bit of the alcohol. Smell is not as in your face as I would expect.
T - Taste comes in almost the reverse order of the nose...strong pine notes up front with a slight alcohol note. By no means a burn but you notice the 9.4%. The beer finishes with the citrus notes mentioned in the smell and a slight sweet bready maltiness.
M - Very light for the style. Often IIPA in the 9+% abv range become fairly viscous; not the case here.
O - Great IIPA, one of my favorites. Love the concept of "Enjoy By"
Serving type: growler
