The last of my foray into their stand at the festival this afternoon. I picked this one last to spare the taste buds. Served on tap and consumed on 09/20/2008.

The pour was very nice with a rich amber color and an over abundance of head. Too much head to be honest, but it may have been the pour, but nice clarity and a good amount of carbonation streaking up towards the surface throughout the session,

The aroma was light, but nice and resiny what was there. Some good touches of pine, hints of orange peel and some nice balancing with the malts. Intresting flavor as it at first came across much more malt driven then I would have expected, however once it really started to crawl across the tongue it developed nice touches of pine that dried out the mouth quite nicely and provided a good bit of balance to it. Nice carbonation keep it feeling good, and suprisingly medium body was a bit chewy and full enough to let the hops really set it. Still though at over 6% this one still came across as quite sessionable.

Overall not my favorite IPA of the day, but this one was still very solid indeed. I would have no issues with trying it again any day.

Serving type: on-tap
