22oz bottle poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Pours a medium golden color, crystal clear in the glass. A finger cap of fluffy white head has excellent staying power, lasting several minutes and leaves behind a webby coat of lacing on the glass.

S - Quite fruity and estery up front with citrus and pine hop notes. Mild background malt that is bready/doughy and a bit sugary sweet.

T - A bit sweet up front with the fruity/estery character coming through from the aroma. Hops are actually quite floral in addition to the pine and citrus contributions. Hop bitterness is subdued and well behind current IPA trends.

F - Medium body with a similar carbonation. Carbonation is soft, a bit foamy/creamy and only slightly tingly on the tongue. Bitterness is crisp and clean - interesting hop profile which is well balanced.

O - At 7% it is a bit high in alcohol to be a true session IPA, but that is the feel that this one gives...maybe even an APA. Hops are definitely not as assertive as most IPA's made these days

Unfiltered and so a bit cloudy in the glass. OK. More yellow than golden. Flavor is hoppy and piney and… woody? Not much for aroma.

Huge thanks to markro1979 for tossing me this one along with a bottle of fair maiden. It would only be right to drink these as fresh as possible so popping this in ep shortly after finishing fair maiden. Enjoyed in a batch 002 TB 22oz oversized snifter.

a - much like fair maiden a stunning example of how a beer should look. Deep murky amber that glows in the light and has a big frothy generous head that leaves milkshake like lace. Although more watery, still looks great.

s - nose is fairly piney and resinous...some candied sugar in the finish...a bit of alcohol sweetness.

t/m/ o - much different from fair maiden...raw and over hopped in comparison. A bit thin and boozier than fair maiden and overall more of a lighter body with a more resinous hopping. Light and good, but a shadow of fair maiden. Worth checking out none-the-less but not a standout for the style by any means.
