A 355ml bottle with a BB of March 2015. Purchased from the Adnams webshop a little while back (a whole case!). Unleash the hops....

A: Poured into a snifter. A clear orange-amber hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a persistent surface layer. Some lacing.

S: Aroma of potent hops with notes of pine resin, weed, orange peel, citrus, mild tropical fruit, subtle grass, caramel malt, yeast and stewed hops. Fantastic.

T: Tastes of intensely aromatic hops with a lingering bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, dank weed, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, mild tropical fruit, caramel malt, yeast esters and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a strident, hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, pine, caramel malt and faint yeast.

O: Excellent - a classic American IPA. Looks lovely, while the aroma and flavour stun the senses with a hop tsunami. Pine, citrus and caramel malt compete for your attention. Good body. Moreish and highly drinkable; I'm glad I've got more stashed away. A must-try beer.
