Poured this beer from a bottle to a chilled glass.
Appearance - Has a nice golden color with a 2 finger head when poured. Head sets to about a half finger thick with some lacing. Decent looking beer.
Smell - Hints of citrus and pine. Hops really come through on the back end of the aroma and the citrus right up front. Smells delicious.
Taste - Really nice piney bitter hop flavor which really finds its way through your entire mouth. On the citrus side of things, I taste some grapefruit with floral notes. This IPA tastes amazing. Hop presence is spot on.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and crisp. Carbonation is just right. Goes down smooth and leaves your mouth dry.
Overall - Seeing the ratings on this beer, I had to go out and get some. Glad I did, this is probably my favorite IPA to date. Great stuff.
