20 oz pint from tap
Brewer says this is "Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale."
A - Clear, golden amber. Creamy, off-white head; coats sides of glass and has good retention
S - Weedy/herbal but clean and fresh hops. Hops. More hops.
T - somewhat complex with barley malt (?) evident. Intense hop shot with piney/orange/grapefruit hop finish that includes some maltiness.
M - smooth; good carbonation
D - too hoppy and bitter for high volume consumption, but then this is a beer to be savored slowly.
For hop lovers only. Like drinking the essence of fresh hops, magically made palatable.
(Lightly revised after June 2013 revisit).
Serving type: on-tap
