A clear, bright copper body with lots of active carbonation bubbles. A big, thick, soapy off-whtie head with fantastic retention; it leaves great lacing too. Good looking beer.
The aroma is powerful as soon as you pop the cap of this one. All kinds of hops. Fruity pineapple, apricot, citrus all with a touch of sweetness from the malt.
This is a great beer. The big hop aromas carry over to the flavor. Once again, all kinds of fruity hop flavors come through; pineapple, apricot, grapefruit and a good touch of bitterness. Just enough malt backbone to balance it out.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation, good and oily.
This beer is fantastic, one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Maybe THE best.
