12oz bottle into pint glass. Enjoy by 9/9/14

re-reviewed from 11/5/11, coz I like to think I know more now. (Jury still out on that)

Golden yellow with a small white head. Good carbonation & lacing.

Not getting much of anything on the nose.

Taste was a very good blending of the hops and malt, just enough of a hop bite to let you know it's there, with a sweet malt wash throughout the mouth.

Mouth was medium with a persisting sour bitterness on the back of the mouth.

Overall, a good and tasty IPA

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: hmmm. Nice head, with decent retention. Pristine copper to bronze color, with respectable lacing.

S: big hop aroma. The nose is dry and forcasts the hoppiness to come. Not very floral or piney, or even citrus, but full of hops nonetheless.a little alcohol.

T: dry as the sahara desert. No sweet maltiness here. The hoppiness and bitterness is driving this bus and we're along for the ride. Grass, pine, and pith are at the forefront, with some spices in the rear, to bring it all home. This is an IP
A to please those that love IPAs.

M: light to medium, lingering, with a medium carbonation.

O: dry, bitter, and full of hoppy charachter that is quintessential of the style, without being a characiture. This is good to great, but not exceptional.
