from the bottle in a newcastle glass
A- light amber, ever-so-slight haziness. Beutiful creamy white head that lingers. lacing is sticking to the glass.
S- hops...i'm not getting a whole lot more due to my sinus congestion. sorry for the lack of specificity.
T- Hop heavy with little to no malt balance. This is my father-in-laws favorite beer for this reason. he loves hops but does not really want it to be balanced with malt. It is very refreshing and there is absolutely NO bad taste in this brew. Hops are the highlight and they are done fantastically. Pine, mild citrus/grapefruit, with a good resin taste that sticks to the tongue.
M- Resin and a lingering aftertaste of hops. Oily finish. very crisp and very refreshing after a day with a heat index above 103*
O- A fantastic IPA that I can find no fault with. No taste detracts from the overall flavor. i prefer my IPA's a little more malty, but for what this is, it is fantastic. if you prefer hop heavy beers, but don't want to break the bank and you want more than 3....try stone's IPA
