Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet.

A - 4.75 - An attractive bronze/orange number and perfectly clear. Head is thick, fluffy and white. It piles into rocky crags and slowly fades. Sheets of lacing. A great looking beer.

S - 4.25 - Aroma leans strongly on hops, as expected. The hops come across with some citrus, but mostly an earthy, herbal impression. They are not piney or grapefruity at all. Faint bready malt in the background and the tiniest hint of yeast fruitiness.

T - 4.5 - Clean, crisp hops start things off. This is followed by bready malt and a honey-like sweetness. In the finish the hops come roaring back to dry things out slightly and create a lingering aftertaste. Yeast and alcohol provide some complexity in the finish as well. Complex and flavorful.

M - 4.5 - Medium to heavy body. Smooth, effervescent carbonation lightens the apparent body somewhat. Some alcohol presence but not extreme. Hops bitterness is moderate to high, but balances well with the other components.

O - 4.5 - This is a big, satisfying beer, but well balanced. The focus is on hops but there is enough malt sweetness among other factors to keep it from being a one-trick pony. Well done.

Fantastic IIPA. Classic west coast hop profile...big citrus with nice resinous pine bitterness. Great bready/biscuit malt backbone to balance this out. Alc @ 8% is masked superbly. Very well crafted.
Cheers!
