on tap at irish pol in philly
Pours a dark amber color with a layer of beige head. Filmy retention slowly dissolves, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass.
Slightly bitter in the nose with some citrus notes. Faint sweetness and bready malts with caramel. Not particularly exciting.
Light bitterness with oily hops and leafy notes. Dry pine notes with resin. Thick, sticky malt backbone with bread crust and caramel sweetness. Light warmth towards the finish.
Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue. This is a pretty nondescript IPA, and the name is laughable. Not something I'd seek out to drink again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: a clear golden brew with a lot of carbonation in the pour but little head retention that left small spots of lacing.
Smells: a pine hop that has a sweet ring to it.
Tastes: a very hop forward IPA with a floral pine hop that bites my tongue in a great way. I enjoy the sweet citrus fruit flavors that are more apparent as it warms up a little.
Mouthfeel: there is a strong bitter bit from the generous amount of hops they infused in this ale but quite refreshing and smooth with the 7%.
Overall: Overall taste of this brew was right on the line between outstanding and very good.
Serving type: bottle
