A legendary brewery, and one I'm anxious to try since I'm normally out of their distribution. Picked this one up in St. Louis.

Pours a clean, light amber with ample head and gorgeous lace. Promising beginning!

Nose is beautiful. I get pine and floral notes, with a hint of fresh pineapple. Already love it!

Taste is chewy and dry, with a tangy citrus/pine hops zip. It's all tempered by a smooth malt profile. This is a delicious IPA, and I'm sure it's even better fresher (my bottle was 5 months old)! Outstanding.

A - This beer appears to be lighter than it tastes and looks oh so refreshing w/a good layer of head that really sticks to the glass. As a good resinous IPA does!

S - It smells bready, citrusy - but less so than many other IPA's

T - The taste is great. Usually I love my IPA's hoppy and very citrusy. This is actually more balanced while still retaining that hopness. It might of changed my mind on what an IPA can be. This to me has some biscuity flavor to it and some more spice & clove

M - Smooth & creamy and lingers in there

O - One of the strongest performers for an IPA in my book, but not sure if it is as drinkable for a short session as some other IPAs might be. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
