Man what a nice suprize! This is a very VERY good IPA. It reminds me of SN Torpedo IPA. The hops shine through very well.
A-I gave it a 4.0 because it doesn't have much head retention or lacing. But it pours a beautiful clear bright light golden color with a medium fluffy almost off white head that QUICKLY dissapates to almost nothing and leaves almost no lacing.
S-Oh yes... Mmmmm... The smell of pungent piney and citrus hops fill my nose to the fullest of full. That smell for a hop lover just is heaven. The citrus seem to overpower the pine hops but it's a beautiful smell indeed. Also there is a slight sweet aromatic maltiness to it too. Very slight, which is good.
T-The flavor is very nice with pungent pine and citrus hop bitterness and flavor. But in contrast to the aroma, the piney hops seem to dominate over the citrus hops, but they both play together nicely. There is also a kind of floral aspect to the hops as well. Very complex and pleasent.
M-Full bodied and thick. Creamy, yet slightly dry in the finish. Very nice.
D-This is a very drinkable IPA. I "think" I could almost session this beer. I might be fooling myself though for the sake of the hops...
