Bottle pour into large, chilled mug.
A...pours a pretty clear
orange with a perfect, pillowy, off white, 2 finger head.
S...Pleasant aroma, not quite as strong a smell as I would expect. A bit more earthy or even mossy than the citrus or fruit I would expect.
T...Fantastic. from the first sip it is just right. A malty sweetness right up front. I'm getting some fruit elements, apricot and some background citrus. Then the hops kick in with a smack in the face bitterness that cuts everything else off. Clean finish.
M...Again, just right. The carbonation is just right when you can't explain it. Its not high carbonation or flat. Not sticky but just thick enough. Heavy but not too much.
O... This is a winner. Full bodied, packed with complex flavors. I am a huge IPA fan and this would be in my top 5. If you like IPA you could not be disappointed with this brew.
