On tap at O'Brien's Pub 14th Anniversary Barrel-Aged beer night 1/15.
A- Pours a clear strong orange hue, thin layer of white head sustains, creamy lacing on the glass
S- Pure hops up front, mostly grassy with a touch of pine, crisp and fresh with a touch of malt in the background
T- Initial taste is delicious, grassy hops with a very 'green' and fresh taste, citrus and pine peek thought with a touch of chalk, delicious!
M- Medium-bodied, oily texture coats the tongue, mild carbonation
D- My second experience with this absolutely stellar single IPA, i love the hop profile and balance, very drinkable with low alcohol presence, I have heard this is a Blind Pig clone which I would love to evaluate in the future, here's to hoping this proliferates and perhaps gets bottled!

Growler from Alpine. Orange color, good head, yes. Aroma of hops and hops and then hops? Pine, citrus, etc. flavor was damn hoppy with only the slightest hint of what I'm guessing are summit hops (onion). Great IPA, super hoppy, glad I got to try it.
