Poured from a Sierra Nevada-esque size 12 oz. bottle. No dating that I saw.
A - golden to light amber. A little orangey. Head is very bubbly, frothy, brilliantly white. Lots of lacing. Head retention is excellent.
S - rich, deep hop aroma. Resiny, piney, citrusy. I can almost taste the hops just from the nose of this beer. Little bit of toasty caramel behind. Impressive.
T - strong hop flavor dominates the palate. Piney, resiny, grapefruit. Almost like biting into a fresh, green pine cone or hop cone. Juicy, sticky, nearly overwhelming hop flavor. There is a decent malt presence in this beer, but it is hard to pick up. A little toast, caramel, biscuit, but hops are front and center in this beer.
M - medium to thin bodied. A little sticky in your mouth due to the hops. Very dry finish. Pucker up!
D - this is an extremely tasty brew, but almost a little overwhelming. Hop flavor is very intense and really dries out your mouth. Still, I could down a couple of these and be a happy camper. Interesting example of the new wave American 'west coast' IPA.
