From from a 1L growler into a Victory tulip
A- pours a slightly hazy orange with a one finger pure white head. Not bad at all.
S- you can definitely tell this sucker is DOUBLE dry hopped, because the nose is absurd. So much citrus
T- nice bitter smash of citrus. Not a very balanced beer IMO, lots of bitterness, not much sweetness, but very good nonetheless
M- body is on the thin side. Little disappointed, but at the same time, at least it's not a syrupy mess
O- good solid beer. Alcohol is hidden pretty well, but the bitterness makes it more of a sipper. Recommended, and a nice house IPA

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.
A - Pours hazy golden amber with a small half finger tall white head leaving sticky trails of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of strong grassy hops, mild citric fruit, some caramel malt, a bit of pine resin and some light earthiness. Smells the part, hope it tastes as good as it smells.
T - Starts off with the same big grassy hop bite that stays around through the finish. Hints of caramel and toffee sweetness, pine and a bit of tropical fruit offer some balance to all the hop bitterness. Finish is a little sweet with plenty of bitterness, lingering on the palate long after the finish. A little more balanced than the nose.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sticky feel from all the hops and sweetness.
O - A nice rift on an already good beer. It smells really nice and has some decent balance but all that hop bitterness started to wear on me toward the end of my glass. I could do one or two of these but that is about it. Anyway, if you are into this kind of beer you will enjoy this one.
