Poured from a bottle into a beer mug. Beer was bottled in May of 2012, and it is now July of 2012.
Appearance: Kept the beer in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before pouring. Upon the first pour, beer cascades out of the bottle's mouth with a bright copper color. Head is super-thick, sticky, and creamily meringue-like. Highly active carbonation visible through the glass. Looks great!
Smell: A good balance of heavy hoppiness (mostly floral) and understated malt sweetness. Nothing overpowering, but not diluted in the least.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Light and crisp at first, the beer has a nice gentle hop bite to it. After a moment on the tongue (as the beer begins to warm slightly), it foams up and spreads across the palate. Aftertaste is very bitter, almost on the edge of decency, but I think I'll let that slide a little.
Overall: A good beer! Billed as their "Session" India Pale Ale, it's another positive offering from Atwater Brewery.
Serving type: bottle
