32 oz. growler filled last weekend, but unopened since then, poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a light, pale golden. Two-finger head of tight, dense eggshell-white foam is topped with a small crown of really loose sudsy bubbles, all of which dissolves into a sheen across the surface and trails of broken lace around the sides. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a bright, almost neon sunshine yellow with just a trace of lime green in it, and clear. Nice legs on the glass from the malt sugars.

S - Citrus and resin hops backed by grainy, lightly toasted malts. Nose is somewhat subdued, but in an approachable way. Pleasant.

T - Toasted malts with bits of light caramel and a touch of butterscotch are nicely balanced by citrus and pine hops that match up like two sides of a coin; they compliment each other well and are tied together with just enough room for each to be noticed on its own. The citrus hops are especially good, tasting like a bowl of oranges and red grapefruit mixed together with a splash of lemon juice. The bitterness of the pine takes over in the finish and pushes out hints of lemon drops. Not a trace of the ABV, this drinks like a regular IPA.

M - Rather fizzy, almost foamy; carbonation should be tighter. Reasonable body with good, integrated construction. Solid structure. Finish is pretty dry, with almost a pucker at the end.

O - Compared to other Double / Imperial IPAs, this one is on the tame side, but that's what makes it so drinkable. Nicely balanced. While it still features the hops, there's a good foundation from the malts that makes this a solid, tasty beer that you keep reaching for across an evening.
