if the lq keeps bringing in little pricey goodies like this,
i'll go broke.
A- pours a clear autumn (could that be hints of green?) tinge. magnificent lacing and a lingering 1.5 inch head
S- clean, bright northwest hops. hints of earth (corn tortillas?)
T- with the lack of hop bitterness, this could almost pass for a generously dry-hopped pale ale. IPAs can be too grassy and overbearing (pliny the elder?), but with citrus (cascade, citra) sweetness right up front, and an earthy backing in the finish; you've had a proper introduction to IPAs. alcohol is disguised until you've already started a fight/proposed/sung karaoke.
M- velvet. i've had barley wines and belgians with the mouthfeel of a shot of robitussin. this one has just the right amount of alcohol and alpha acids to (very) temporarily numb the tongue; leaving a silky, smooth finish. other domestic (coors, bud, miller) beers may boast of a "smooth finish", but after tasting this one, they must mean "it's like water!"
O- though i vacillate between the dark and light, the hoppy and the malty, if i was introducing someone to the IPA world (without scaring them off); i'd choose this one.
