"Born on Date" on the bottle says June 11, 2013. Consumed on June 20, 2013, so I'm drinking this one with less than 10 days of age on it. . . .
A: Poured into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is hazy light orangey-yellow with a big (2+ finger) fluffy white head that retains well and then leaves pillowy lace on the sides of the glass.
S: Nice nose - think juicy hops. Tropical fruit, apricot or ripe peach, citrus and a hint of pine needle. Hits all the hop bases in my book.
T: Not as juicy, hop-wise, as the nose led me to expect, but it's certainly quite nice. Modest crackery malt underneath, but then a big hop assault: lemony citrus, grapefruit pith, apricot and a touch of pine or spruce. Some earthiness as well. Heat from the ABV (7%) is felt in the belly, but other than a touch of spice at the back end of the sip, it's not really noted on the palate. Lingering dry hop bitterness puckers the mouth somewhat.
M: Heft is on the lighter side of medium, making this one drink like one of those "Session" IPAs, even though it's packed full of flavor and carries a decent wallop, alcohol-wise. Carbonation is quite active, but soft-prickled on the palate.
O: This is good stuff. Not sure what I paid for it, but if it was reasonable, I'd go grab a few more.
