A: Great clarity on this beer, pale golden in colour. Head lingers and never quite dissipates. Leaves some lacing around the glass.
S: I get a lot of strong pine smell from the northwest hops, a little grassy even. Very inviting.
T: Quite dry, but I still pick up some sweetness from the malt. Strongly bitter in the aftertaste and lingering afterwards. There is some grassy flavour from the hops, which I did not find particularly appealing.
M: Very well carbonated. A light body, with a strong bitterness.
O: This was a good IPA, but I have had much better. In my opinion, the hop profile is too confused. They have used different hops that I find are somewhat clashing. It is dry, with minimal residual sweetness. Everything is spot on except for the hop flavour, unfortunately.
