12 oz. bottle. Here's hoping this one wasn't chilling on the shelf too long!
This is a good looking IPA. Really impressive finger and a half of head, fluffy eggshell. Amber body with lots of tiny bubbles. Impressive lacing, almost looks like a mineral formation on the side of the glass.
The smell is great, and manages to be unique, thanks to a fresh, almost minty aroma. Plenty of piney hops, and what seems to be a sturdy malt background.
The taste definitely carries over the mintyness from the smell, while also delivering on the hop bitterness from front to back. The well carbonated mouthfeel matches up with a dry (but not too dry) finish.
This is a really good IPA... if only the price didn't make my wallet cry. Oh well.
