Best by 2/28/14.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear dark amber with a finger thick white head which receded fairly quickly to sudsy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt.

t: Pine hops forward over medium malt base, bitter and at first slightly metallic aftertaste.

m; Light to moderate.

o: An ok stronger-than-average IPA, probably great at a Red Sox game in the summer. So I'm drinking it in the wrong season. But I like to change it up. I already had a malty winter beer earlier, and plan to have a stout later. This one does not seem to have a lot of flavor competing with the hop bite, but it is refreshing.

Draught served in pint glass. Beer is medium orange amber with a bit of white head. Aroma suggests not much went into this IPA as far as dry hopping goes. Flavor is hoppy but quite drinkable. Reasonably well balanced, and very neutral in the aftertaste, but pretty average on flavor, too. Decent lacing, at least. Not at all a "Monsta", this could be quite sessionable, if it was worth your time.
