Thanks to chonyr for bringing this north. Slightly paler than most IIPAs with its brilliantly clear golden body. Capped by a nice two and a half finger off white head that wants to stick around and leave sticky gobs of lace, which it gladly does as i enjoy my brew.

Aroma is a bit of a let down, then again was probably fresher and hoppier in the fall versus now. Biscuit and caramel, hints of grapefruit, pine and a touch of a slightly rank musky smell.

Some toasty malts also make their way into the biscuity malts along with the touch of caramel. Despite the pale colour the malts are solid in this brew, but are overpowered by the hops. Will be keeping my eyes open to try a fresher sample next fall. Still a fairly hoppy brew, almost resinous, with a decent amount of white grapefruit and pine.

Medium bodied, decent tea like astringency, and a decent amount of hops, with a nice balance of flavour and bitterness despite being a few months away from a fresh sample. Difficult to read the enjoy by date, but this bottle is still within the time frame.

Goes down very easily, only a hint of alcohol warmth betrays its 8.5% abv. A solid IIPA that reminds the drinker that beer is made form malted barley too, but certainly focuses on the the hops. A solid IIPA that is well worth trying, i dont mind the cat pissy skunkiness that comes along with the wallop.
