12oz bottle taken from a six-pack purchased at a local grocery store for $6.99. According to the label, this is “Best by November, 2013.”
Poured a clear, orangey amber color with a big, sudsy beige head that took it’s time to drop and left lots of lace on the sides of my glass.
Not as hoppy as, say, a typical West Coast IPA, but there’s quite a bit of piney hop aroma. Some bready malts can be scented as well.
As I expected, piney hops up front. It’s pretty well balanced with the malts. Finishes somewhat lager-like, but with more hop flavor than I was expecting, with a bit of a dry zap at the end.. Seems rather sessionable.
Slightly slick, oily mouthfeel, though much more toned down than most IPAs.
Seems like a good summer session beer, but with a little extra hop flavor – not a bad thing. Reminds me of Iron Goat’s ISA. Not bad at all.
