Serve on-tap in a branded imperial nonic pint glass at Three Notch'd Brewing Company (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Clear amber hue with controlled 1-finger off-white, light beige head with good retention and nice lace collars down the glass.
S: Bright grapefruit and orange citrus and floral hops aromas meet a pretty strong honeysuckle, herbal, earthy quality. Overall, it is very obvious that we are dealing with fresh from the tank hoppy beer here -- it has that slightly shooty quality of freshly made, highly hopped IPA. Any malt aromas are background with a light grain and mild caramel character. No yeast or alcohol component.
T: The flavors follows pretty closely from the aromas with a super-fresh hops bite with slightly herbal, grassy notes up front but then tempered with more grapefruit, orange, and lemony qualities. The maltiness has a mellow crackery quality to it with minimal caramel sweetness. The yeast and alcohol do not figure into the flavor. Moderately bitter overall impression. A clean, fresh, and hoppy American IPA with excellent hops flavor and complexity.
M: Light-medium body with pretty even to slightly higher than needed carbonation. Medium dry finish.
O: I enjoyed this IPA for its fresh and crisp qualities. I would love to see a bit more tropical fruit character in the beer, but overall, I really enjoyed this brew and have to hand it to the TN crew for putting out a stellar IPA to anchor its lineup.
Serving type: on-tap
