slow pour into a standard pint glass.
A: Poured to a one-and-a-half fingers of light khaki head that disapated into a thin layer after a few minutes and left a good lacing as the glass emptied. The brew is a golden orange and cloudy.
S: The aroma is a citrus and floral hops equally balanced with a sweet honey and malt.
T: It begins with a robust bitterness and then some citrus and floral hops with a mild honey sweetness and a slightly sweet and bready malt that is just enough to take the edge off the bitterness. There is also an alcohal heat the compliments the bitter nops bite.
M: The body is medium to heavy with a light carbonation. A very satisfying mouthfeel.
O: An outstanding robust IPA. Great hops bite and bitterness with just enough malt sweetness to take the harsh edge off the bitterness. The honey sweetness also fits well and adds a unique flavor. The alcohal heat at just the right level to compliment the citrus and floral hops and bitterness. This is one of the best IPA's around.
