Round one of the Great Snowstorm IPA Taste-Off (Ed. 2014)*
Pours a lovely hazel with deep head. Check this out though: the head is full of LARGE bubbles. I have no idea why or how, but they're big, and they're distinct. Lacing on the glass is less like a spiderweb and more like a mountain range. Very Sochi. Very Caucasus. My wife proclaims that it looks like scallops. Also very Sochi.
Aroma is vaguely smokey, and certainly more malty than hoppy. Ah, the glory of rye. Taste us powerful, but commendably, laudably, superbly balanced. Malts win the day, but the hops are ever-present. Fine medium mouthfeel, and cavernous rye aftertaste. Pairs well with Utz Ripples and winter Olympics.
*Rules: When significant snow likely to give you time to consume large quantities of birra is forecast, buy some up, and post 'em up.
