13311 - so reasonably fresh.
Huge billowy head. Quite clear golden amber. Can't pour full bottle into SN IPA glass due to size of the head.
Fresh west coast hopping and very pleasant aroma. Hint of hop oil and pale malt background. Solid, but not exceptional.
Nice mix of flavors and very nice balance. Hop flavors throughout and firm bittering on the extended finish. Malting lacks any strong sweetness. Hops give some grassiness and push intensity without going to the point of unpleasant.
Good feel. Soft and enjoyable fullness to the moderate feel.
This is good. I've had several bottles now and I enjoy this one the most, but it's not to the point of the current mean (4.41). Also I can do just as enjoyable for less cost.
