I think that this one came to me care of my local IP trader, tone77. Watch my progression today as I go from a single on up.
From the bottle: "Hear ye, hear ye ... All hopheads shall herewith rejoice! Terrapin hath recruited ye olde HOPSECUTIONER to execute the exact hop profile for this killer IPA. YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOPHEAD OVER THIS ONE!"
That last part really makes me sad as I just took receipt of my knitted hophead from wiresiren and I would hate to lose it! In fact, that may be my headgear for GTMW 2012 in a couple of weeks.
My pour netted me a massively thick, foamy tawny head that extended above the rim of the glass, resembling the top of an ice cream cone. Color was a deep amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was redolent with minty hops. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was like spearmint or peppermint, really intense and cooling! Yum! The finish was dry, cool, minty, just the way I really prefer an AIPA. The sticky lacing that was left behind was going to require a jackhammer to remove. More, please!
