Missed out on a growler fill, but got a nice sample from the tap to review. This is more of an East Coast style IPA in my experience, rather than the West Coast styles they typically make. Brewed with 90-something% Chinook and just a bit of Cascade hops.
Light fizzy head with some lacing, hazy carrot orange color.
Nose piny spicy hops, light resin, some earthiness, hint citrus orange rind, almost minty, hint of sweet malt.
Taste starts with earthy hops, light spicy but not much, light citrus rind and resin, but the pine really comes out. Fluffy malt base adds a nice filler. Juicy overall and pretty tasty, with bitterness there but not rampant. The finish on the other hand really dries and bitters, with a bit of hop oil and resin lingering with more pine and hint of citrus.
Mouth med bodied, fluffy, nice carb.
Overall pretty nice. I was a little worried about the Chinook becoming astringent spicy and too bitter, but it's fairly nice overall, and that hint of citrus from the Cascade is a nice addition.
Serving type: on-tap
