Another great IPA. This one pours a clear, light amber color with minimum carbonation and a 1 inch off-white head that melts down to a long lasting quarter inch. Lacing is very pronounced, like a ladder pattern on the glass. The smell was strong, some hops, but also the type of fruity smell that I usually associate with hefe weizens. No hefe weizen/astringent taste though. Definitely a hops leaning taste, but not an "in your face" hops flavor like Hop Hog or Big Foot. The predominant tastes were hops and citrus, not much of the SNPA type pine aroma/taste. Mouthfeel is what I would expect in an IPA. Drinkability is high!! No hint of the ABF, a nice balanced (I call "leaning towards hops" balanced!) taste. This is something you could cheerfully swill until it catches up with you.
