Quick hit

Lots of really good things.

Pine. Grapefruit. Pineapple. Carmel malt. Well balanced. Not overly hoppy. Clean finish.

One bad thing.

I get a BO/ dirty gym socks smell that brings it all down a little.

I'm a sucker for beers resembling WC IPA's. Here goes:

A: Very clear orange amber with a large head that leaves adequate lacing. Plenty of carbonation to boot.

S: Very piney and floral characteristics. Also some grapefruit. Also some caramel malt and honey to balance out the hops.

T: Delicious. Tastes very much like SN Hoptimum. Initial taste is of caramel/honeyed malt which gives way to hops. Hops are predominantly piney with a hint of grapefruit(i.e., pineapple, some mango, too). Great mix between hops and malt.

F: Very good. Very full-bodied. Actually, it feels somewhat heavier than 7.5% ABV.

O: Great beer. Will have again.
