Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A: Pours deep golden, almost a rich honey color. Hazy white head with staying power, and ample lacing sticks around for the entirety of the beer.
S: Sweet and hoppy. You know what you're going to taste when you smell this beer. I'd almost prefer it to be even stronger.
T: Wow. Huge hop flavor throughout, slightly sweet, bitter without being overpowering. Subtle honey notes bring out the complexity of the hops. It's unbelievable, getting even better as it warms slightly. So balanced, beautiful flavor. I don't know that I've had an IPA that I prefer to this.
M: Smooth and balanced. Hides the 10% ABV well, dangerously drinkable. My only note is that I'd like a hint more carbonation.
O: Stunning beer. Glad I was able to get my hands on some of this... I've now had it on tap, and I've got a few bottles. Easily one of the best I've ever had.
Serving type: bottle
