thanks to Shaggy9356 for getting me this one...
A-pours an amber gold with a whole lotta off-white colored head. has a bit of lacing that stays.
S-MMM this smell puts a heart warming smile on my face! its smells like spicy but grassy hops. there's even a bit of sweet citrus in there as well. it has a great strength to it as well!
T-mmm and the taste makes me smile as well. this IPA is like a wonderful dessert. after your first sip, you're so happy you have the rest of the bottle still ahead of you. it comes in with a large blast of the spicy and grassy hops. there's a really pleasant bitterness that follows. It has a great creaminess and even a tad of saltiness in there as well that makes this IPA stand out from other i've had. the after-taste is mostly grassy with a bit of citrus in there as well. bottom line: i consider myself to be a hophead and this IPA pleases me as much as any!
M-has a good, creamy, medium carbonation with a crisp finish
D-Thank goodness this comes in a bomber! although, it might as well come in 12oz so i could get 6 packs and drink them in a night. this is so good and it stays so tasty all the way through! i love this beer!
