This beer is a New Orleans brewery called NOLA Brewing company. It is a 6.5% ABV "West Coast style India Pale Ale," made with six malts and six different hops.
The beer pours a slightly hazy copper color, with an off white foam head that is pillowy at first, and then breaks down. Good lacing on the glass that hangs around as you savor the brew.
I got a really nice nose of grapefruit and pine. Not as powerful as some IPAs, but very pleasant.
Really like the taste of this beer. You get a lot of the citrus and pine flavors, but there is a definite malty taste as well. More malty than most IPAs I have had, but it doesn't overpower the bitterness of the hops. You still get a nice lingering bitterness throughout the taste. Lots more hops in the taste than in the nose.
Good mouthfeel. The bitterness sticks to the sides of your mouth, and the beer has a moderate carbonation.
