Bottle > Sensory Pils Glass

A- Pours a medium hazed amber, 2 finger off white head, mild lacing.
S - Pine, biscuit malt, more pine, a touch of citrus zest, ohh and pine.
T - PIne, pine, some dried apricot, pine, a touch of sweet malt, some light alcohol burn, or is that the bitterness? pine, and definitely more pine.
M - pi...i mean extremely bitter, this is a palate dominator.
O - The classic, and aptly named West Coast IPA, is full of...you guessed it, pine. And its extremely bitter. While this may have been one of the better IPA's back when, its overly aggressive flavor, and feel just renders your taste buds useless for a while. Though if you're in the mood for that kind of beer, this is it, and much more so than palate wrecker in my opinion.
