22oz bottle into a tulip

Fresh as it gets

A- Pours a beautifully clear golden copper orange with two fingers of bright white head that leaves glorious sticky lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Smells like a beautiful west coast IPA. Tons of pine and citrus notes as well as some grapefruit, tangerine, and some bready caramel from the malts.

T- Really smooth and clean. Up front the caramel sweet malts hit your tongue but are quickly over taken by the bitter pine and grassy hops. Lots of fruity citrus and tropical flavors. The finish is very dry and bitter with a strong astringency that sticks with you.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice strong bitter dry finish.

Skål!

Absolute perfect example of an America IPA. Beautiful aromatics and flavors of tropical fruit followed by bright citrus and piney bitterness. Great lacing in a pint glass. It finishes with a welcome bitterness that lingers pleasantly on the palate. This is the IPA that most IPA's want to be when they grow up.
