This ale poured a nice amber coloured well carbonated, finely bubbled ale. Decent light tan coloured head formed on the pour. Fine lacings remained after the head dissipated.
This ale has a big IPA like nose. Theres lots of resinous hops in here, mostly piney, but grapefruit also present. Malty notes below the hops, with scents of toasted biscuit and caramel.
Also almost tastes like an IPA with the bitter resinous hops. The pine and grapefruit from the hops dominate, but the malts have some backbone tasting of lightly honeyed toasted biscuit, caramel, and just a hint of creamy nuts.
This is a damn fine pale ale, well balanced but definately tilted towards the hops. Tea like astringency on the finish, as well as a slight metallic taste/feel that comes with the bitterness.
This is a very drinkable hoppy beer, and would make a great session brew for a hophead. Would also make a decent introductory brew for those wanting to explore hoppier beers. Ill be drinking this one again.
