Perfect IPA

appearance: golden amber hues, almost red

smell: loaded and more loaded hops, very plesant for a hop head

taste: like hops of course, this beer is loaded with it. I think this is one of my fasvorite IPAs.

mouthfeel: thin not thick. good carbonation and very tasty

drinkability: very easy and smooth. and goes great with spicy snacks or meals.

Notes and descriptions typed in real time!

On draught, poured into a shaker style glass. Pour is about a finger’s worth short of a pint, even with the head. I know from experience that’s a way bars can extend the life of their kegs. Sneaky!

Straw/golden color, clean and clear, with tiny bubbles rising up and releasing all sorts of floral, delicate hoppy aromas. Yum! This is a beer to inhale at your leisure.

Of course you can drink it, which is what I prefer. The beer dances on the palate. There’s a definite hop bite to it, with a clean, sharp finish. Great carbonation. A little maltiness to balance the sting. More floral than piney hops, although I get a sense they’re in there too. (Again, I need to work on my hop education.) A standard bearer, and not just limited to the west coast obviously. Yum. I really enjoy this beer.

The beer pours a beautiful pale yellow that is crystal clear. this is the color that I try to get my home brewed ipas to look but never do. there is a thick white frothy head

the smell is incredible, there are lovely hop notes in both the smell and taste, and a nice amount of bitterness in the finish

the mouthfeel is nice and light and crisp, and the drinkability is high this is an awesome ipa
