poured from a growler (filled at Whole Foods) into a larger tulip glass...
I've had this from a can previously and found it to be an easy-to-drink IPA, not complex, but very well balanced and smooth with a lemony-citrus aftertaste.
tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Mother Road Lost Highway Black IPA, Dragoon IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...
color and appearance are a dark honey yellow with a head that settles down to about 1/4"
smell is nice, not overwhelming. a blend of the hops used: Cascade, Glacier, Magnum, Liberty, Simcoe
taste is similarly balanced, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but complement and result in a very pleasant mouthfeel...
In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is definitely in the top 20, and maybe in the top 10!
Serving type: growler
