Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with one finger of off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: Grapefruit and pine are most evident in this beer's deep hops profile, although it also appears very green and dank in aroma. Some rather bready malt with crystal nuances are detectable. No alcohol is detected.
T: Begins sweet, with piney and herbaceous hops aromatics that are complimented by the moderate to aggressive citric acidity that is tasted. Malt is scaled appropriately but not show-stealing, due to its largely two-row character, which allows the hops to remain in the featured role. Flavors make a case for the sublime toward the finish, with refined toasted grain and botanical hops tapering into neat cohesion. Bitterness is mild for the style, and quite plant-affected. No alcohol is detected.
M: Medium to thick viscosity, creamy and slightly resinous on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: This big IPA successfully walks a fine line that brings it close to being a messy, kitchen-sink project without erring into such a tiresome realm. The smell hints at just such a fate, but the flavor profile delivers something more mature and metered--but still overtly hoppy. The hops cultivar is not widely known by name as one of the highly-sought New Zealand cultivars, and perhaps with good reason; it's profile is most comparable to the most sturdy and intense of West Coast (California) hops.
