Picked up two bottles from Kappy's Medford and an additional bottle from Gary's Liquors in West Roxbury.

A: Poured slowly into a .5L pilsner glass - pours an attractive bright gold, moderately heavy carbonation, beer up almost to the line with a creamy white head filling the rest of the glass with a little piling over the rim.

S: Fresh, piney hops, enough to fill the room as soon as you open the bottle. A hint of citrus from the hops, as well.

T: Obviously very hoppy, but not overwhelming. Has an aftertaste that I can't quite pin down. Doesn't taste like it has more alcohol than a 'regular' beer.

M: Smooth, with a pleasant amount of carbonation.

O: This is more on the 'refreshing' side of the Double IPA/L spectrum. Easy to drink, while still maintaining a hop-forward presence and bitterness. Doesn't dry the mouth out. Overall, quite good.

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass. This was bottled less than 2 weeks ago.

Appearance: Pours a pretty clear amber/gold and leaves a couple fingers of white head which hangs around for a while. Plenty of carbonation can be seen flying from the bottom of the beer to the surface. Lots of lacing.

Smell: A nice balanced combination of pine and citrus hops. Quite aromatic - I can smell this from several feet away. Mainly hops in the smell, but there is a little malt in the background.

Taste: Delicious, floral hops yet with a big enough yet mild malt backbone. Pine with some mild citrus are the main players. Extremely drinkable. Alcohol is expertly masked, tastes more like 5-6% IPA.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly creamy body. Matches the style very well. Very drinkable body with a crisp finish.

Overall: Really well balanced and super high drinkability with lots of fantastic flavor. This is definitely a go-to IPA. Really refreshing and a very well crafted brew.
