Served in a mason jar looking mug from the brewer.

A: dark golden with a thin white head.

S: hops and alcohol

T: good amount of bitterness. Mostly just taste the hops.

M: crisp but not too crisp. Goes down smooth. Good beer to drink at the sports bar.

O: decent ipa. I would order again.

Light amber in color, fairly heavy pour creates half an inch of off-white head that peters out to a thin bubbly film. Nice lacing but not as much of a cap as I prefer for the style.

This beer smells great. A Balanced mix of fruitiness and hops. Not much in the realm of malts or bread/wheat that I expected, probably due to the intense hope spiciness.

There is a lot going on with taste. The fruitiness in the aroma is not as pronounced in the taste as the hops really take over here. The hops take a brief second to kick in as the taste starts a little spicy and finishes more bitter. There is a little bit of bread in the aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is a little more dry than I expected, slightly astringent. a decent amount of carbonation, I would say a little more than moderate. Light to medium in body.

Overall pretty good. Personally I would rather have a little more malt in the backbone of this one. The hops are balanced out in the aroma but not in the taste. I do like the lightness in body for the ABV. This one does not taste as strong as it is.
