Poured into an Imperial pint.
A - Nice medium sized white head packed with small tight bubbles. Good clarity to its orangish golden color. Left a nice bit of lacing on the glass.
S - Fresh citrus hops, a little tropical. Some piney smells as well. Very wet, fresh smell. Touch of graininess in the background. I can pick up some alcohol after it warms a little bit.
T - Has a solid grainy/biscuity malt backbone. Bright citrus/pine hop flavors mid-palette. Rounded impact of bitterness near the end. Finishes nice and dry. Hop flavor lasts long into the aftertaste.
M - Medium to medium-full bodied, medium carbonation, dry.
O - Great lighter look to this beer for a double IPA. Smell is fresh and bright. Malt holds up well, bitterness doesn't overwhelm nor is sharp. Perfectly dry. Great feel. Excellent example of a double IPA. No wonder why I guzzled the first 5 in the pack down before I took the time to review the final one.
