Bought a single 12 oz bottle at a supermarket to try it.
Chilled to 45 degrees F.
Poured into a Saint Arnold's 12 oz clear taster glass.
This beer is a sleeper. I was expecting a stronger nose given the style. What I did smell was very pleasant in a subtle way. I had to sniff it a few times to get a good olfactory reading. Nice. Almost no head. Rapid disappearance. Nice carbonation. Small, lightly populated trails of bubbles reaching the surface. Nice sticky lacing lasting till the end of the glass. This beer has a wonderful and interesting flavor. It does not come on as strong as many IPAs and yet as it lingers on your tongue you taste more and more flavors that entice you to raise the glass to your lips again.
I definitely like this beer. If you are hesitant to drink an AIPA, try this one.
A very pleasingly-smooth presentation of this style.
Worth storing a few. I am curious how it ages.
