Received in a trade from lagadeer.
Beautiful hazy orange with massive, thick off white head that never goes away and laces wonderfully down the glass.
Smells like hop nirvana. Big punch of juicy hops followed by resiny pine. This is as close to perfect as an IPA can be. I wish I smelled this good. A compliment of malt does waff through on the second or third takes.
Taste is what unbelivalbe. Juicy hops are the front followed by the piney resin. The malts fill out the bill leaving nothing more to want. Feel is very good and leaves a nice aftertaste on the palate.
I can't pick a favorite IPA, it's like picking a favorite kid, but for today this is it. I know I am gushing over this, but it is that good. I would love more of this beer. If I were out west this would be a fridge staple.
