A pint on tap. Arrived with a billowing head that was exceptionally thick and creamy. It left loads of sticky lacing.
Citrus hops with traces of alcohol and malts in the nose.
The beer also has a strong citrus component on reaching the tongue, but this becomes more piney mid-taste. Strikingly sweet when it hits the tongue, with no immediate hop hit following ... this does appear in the surprisingly hoppy finish. Thus, this IPA creates a striking and unusual (well, exaggerated) flavor dynamic.
Serving type: on-tap

Served from 22 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
A - Straw-colored, slightly hazy body. The head is thick and white. This is the way an IPA should look!
S - Orange, grass and spring flowers. Just a hint of pine and hemp.
T - Much like the smell, but more pungent. The orange and floral notes work in perfect harmony, with the semi-sweet crackery malt keeping everything in rhythm. The finish has more hoppy flavors and some assertive, but refreshing, bitterness.
M - A smooth mouthfeel to go with a medium body. Carbonation is near perfect.
O - A fantastic IPA. When enjoyed fresh, it's one of the best widely-distributed single IPAs around. If the six-pack weren't $12, this would be my go-to beer without a doubt.
