A - Poured smooth with a light fluffy white head that dissipated quickly, leaving a pretty, thin white surface. Big-time lacing on the inside of the glass.
S - Sweet and malty on the nose. I can detect a faint hop aroma and I'm now very curious about how that will show up on the tongue.
T - Hops hits first and hits hard. It's totally backed up by a sweetness that comes through much stronger in taste than in smell. I can't taste alcohol until it hits the back of the tongue. Aftertaste is bitter and lingering. It makes me want to take another sip to get at that maltiness.
M - Big carbonation, but this beer is light in the mouth. It almost has to be, considering the attention-getting taste. Very good.
D - I could have a few of these tonight. Not too heavy but quite substantial.
This beer is totally rewarding with every sip and very true to style. If you're an American IPA lover you owe this one a try.
