Poured into Jacks Abby pint. I had one HELL of a time opening this growler up...
Big thanks to my sister and cousin for stopping by and grabbing me growlers.
A Golden straw body with a slight orange hint and a tiny tiny haze. A vigorous pour brought a medium sized head with little retention leaving some lace when it went down. Pretty active carbonation in the glass when playing with it. Some foam is left on top of the beer.
S Sweet pale malts and earthy, piney hops.
T somewhat balanced upfront for a second then the bitterness really picks up fast. Piney grassy hops with a pretty harsh bitter finish that lingers. Theres some light malt upfront that's sweet then carried by hops to the finish. The more I drink it the more I can pick out the malts which is nice.
M Medium feel with similar carbonation. Finishes somewere between sticky and dry
O NIce IPA that destroyed my palate at first sip. I found it nice to drink a really bitter hoppy IPA and still get some malt out of it. Good stuff from a young brewery, looking forward to more when I'm in the Bristol/Croydon area

Barely a finger’s worth of wispy white foam, with lots of larger bubbles it dissolves rapidly to a thin surface coating, the lacing fares a little better with long, sticky streaks all along the glass sides. The liquid is shiny and fully transparent, an attenuated orange to then yellow color, only a few random bubbles visible. Very floral nose, violets and lilacs, orange blossom, gentle apricot to peach, apple fruit notes, segues to cut grass, salt, pepper and hard bread crust, there’s some funk in the hops yet it also has a cleansing purity to it, not much to be found by way of really sweet maltiness. Full-bodied, thick enough to be sluggish, not a lot of carbonation. The tangerine, orange to white grapefruit citrus a larger factor here, just outpoints the metallic earthy and herbaceous qualities, which themselves are formidable. The fruit lacks sweetness but there’s bite in the pineapple, papaya, nectarine, peach flavors. More grainy than processed bread, touch of peppercorns and pine cones. By the end unwinds enough that the floral dimension gets assertive. If you like your IPA’s on the bitter side while still mostly balanced, this should be in your wheelhouse. Wisely keeps it simple when it could get overcomplicated.
