Served from bottle into my DFH Chalice.
A - Beautiful orange pour with a nice pillowy head that reduces to a great soapy top. Very clear and inviting. Lacing like a champ.
S - Awesome. West Coast nose for sure. Piney, grapeftuity, very strong hop aroma.
T - Outstanding. Floral hops right up front with a citrusy kick. The back end leaves a bready maltiness on your palette for the aftertaste. Very, very well balanced as it's not too much of a 'hop-bomb'. Very similar hop-notes to FW Union/Double Jack.
M - Carbonation is pretty good. A bit bubbly and could maybe benefit from a more creamy texture. This brew is probably a champ on cask. Leaves a nice wet coating in your mouth.
O - Sing it's praises. Solid every-day IPA. At 7% it's right in between that all-the-time and with-good-friends category. Great beer and would love to have a constant flow of it.
