Serving- On Tap at their Brewery/TapRoom
Appearance- Enjoyed this outside so it had more ambient light than I normally get to see with my brews. That being said, it appeared golden. That was about it. Not dark by any stretch but not light. Right in the sweet-spot range for a good, basic IPA. Nice half-finger head which dissipated within a few minutes.
Nose- Slightly more grassy than I get with a lot of IPA's. That was the only note that stood out in my mind as being different than a lot of others in this style. Also, plentiful light Citrus. Perhaps some zesty citrus like lemon. Nice smell. Really solid. You know before you take a drink it's gonna be good.
Taste- Oh yeah, this one is good! Archetypical IPA- Perfect bitterness up front with a bit of malty finish you can tell it's got a good amount of malt backbone to balance it out. There is also that grassiness once more, this time in the taste in addition to the smell. As it warms I seem to get more pine as well. Great.
Overall- I really like this beer. I only was able to enjoy one the day I dropped by but I would no doubt get this any time I had the option to. If it were available in bottles/cans locally I'd love to keep a 6 pack in my fridge all the time. Really everything good about this style highlighted in a copper pint glass.
Serving type: on-tap
