Growler into pint glass
A: Medium amber. Half-inch white head with some stick. Impressive, considering I opened the growler yesterday. Head fades to a thick layer of lace.
S: Citrus and pine dominate. There's pale malt in there too, but the first impression is all West Coast hop.
T/M: Slightly sweet and malty up front, with a citric and resiny bitterness in the middle. Finish is a slight lingering bitterness backed by toasty malt. Slight medicinal alcohol as it warms. Feel is substantial -- bordering on DIPA territory. For all the West Coast hop in the aroma, this actually turns out to be a more balanced, East Coast-type interpretation of the style.
D: I think Dogfish Head has the trademark on "session IPA" with their 60-minute, and it's deserved. But the (512) IPA could also be a contender for that label. Only potential problem is the ABV.
Serving type: growler
