Lightly hazed, golden colored body lays beneath a thick, porous bone-white head. Retention, lacing, and carbonation trails are light.
Did someone just set up a Christmas tree in here? Hoppy pine, pine, pine, and more pine. Pine-cone, dry grass and tree bark, and light spicing. Perhaps a bit of sawdust - smells dry.
Similar to the aroma - piney. Bitterness is potent and hits you right away and leaves your tongue tingling for the entire sip. Very earthy quality to the hop profile with a bit of oak. A slight sweet spike on the finish gives you a hint of tropical fruit, but is quickly subdued by bitterness while screaming "uncle!"
Done dry. I typically don't mind a dry IPA, but I don't like being more thirsty at the end of a glass than I was before I started - seems counter productive. Body is pretty light and carbonation is spot on. Bite is nearly perfect as well - potent without knocking you off your feet. Adjusting the finish would help this one tremendously.
A solid IPA, but far too dry for my liking. With a few changes, in my opinion this would be a force to be reckoned with.
