look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a tulip with some slight white lacing and head. Pours a more or less golden color, a slight haziness, though not as much as nelson (which i had immediately before this one).
Carbonation is pretty evident.
Smell is a peachy/piney blast, very very pleasant.... not a whole lot of malt evident in the smell or the taste for that matter.
Smell has a lot in common with nelson, though not quite as distinct to me... the floral character is evident throughtout.
Taste is outstanding, in line with the best west coast ipa's i've had, just pure hoppy goodness that does not subside for the entire glass.
Mouthfeel is very crisp with a slight sense of resin (not nearly as much as expo hop or pure hop).... not as much of the "bite" as nelson. Overall in line with what you would think of for a good west coast ipa in terms of the mouthfeel and, in turn, the drinkability.
Would certainly be one of my go to's if I lived in the area.
Serving type: on-tap
