Poured into a perfect pint glass. Slightly hazy dark-ish amber with lovely thick (2 fingers) of sturdy, rocky, foamy head. Good retention and small bits of lace.
Upon opening the hoppy scent pours out. Citrus, mostly and some pines. Actually after pouring it the smell seems to minimize and there is something a bit off-putting about the odor.
The taste packs a punch though. A bit of sweet citrus, lemon, but strongly bitter piney hops. But then there is this caramel-malt goodness to keep it fairly balanced (while still being a strongly hoppy IPA). The alcohol is not noticeable in the taste.
Mouthfeel and Drinkability - medium to thick-ish, soft. This is a nice, refreshing IPA! I could have several of these, and with 6.7% alcohol, that would not be too bad of a thing. I'm a fan.
