12oz bottle to snifter.
A: Burnt orange / coppery color. Very clear with some light carbonation. Light head. A little pillowy and creamy looking in this glass. It recedes in about a minute.
S: Nice aroma. Mostly all hops here. Right up front I got some citrusy Grapefruit and fresh Pear & Apricot -- nice. Some grain in the background.
T: Tart hoppiness. Citrus grapefruit is back. Malts recede to the hop character. This is a hop-forward IPA (west coast).
M: Medium to fuller body. Dryness that I would enjoy more with some more carbonation. I'm wishing it was more effervescent.
D: Very enjoyable. Aroma is the strength here and less so for flavor and mouthfeel, but still a very good beer. I had 3 bottles back to back.
Serving type: bottle
