Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass.
Thanks BeerKangaroo for this one!
What a lovely beer, beautiful orange-gold color and, thanks to my aggressive pour, a nice foamy and lasting head that mounds nicely above the rim of the glass. It dissipates to some lovely and long-lasting lacing.
A great aroma goes a long way towards making a beer among my favorite IPA's and this one is very nice. This isn't quite up there with some of my all-time favorites but it's excellent. The pine hits me first and then some nice floral notes and a bit of citrus, maybe a little pineapple as well.
The taste is top-notch. I'm hit straight off with the pine, then a mix of pine and and citrus and a little bit of the sweet malt backbone (which becomes more pronounced as the beer warms a bit). There is a piney resinous taste that lingers at the back of the tongue. Yeah, the bitter sticks around, in a very good way.
There is a fair amount of carbonation here but it serves to keep the taste buds alive for the next sip. There is a little lingering stickiness that is not at all unpleasant.
This is a very nice IPA that, were it available to me, I would buy regularly. Excellent.
