(4.25) A: Mostly clear amber colour with a tall and very creamy and puffy head that is stark white. Outstanding retention that slowly forms a crater shape.

(4.0) S: Bold damp pine, tart grapefruit, lemon zest, and buttered bread. Textbook for the style with clearly defined aromas that are big and robust. Earthy/mossy. Noticeable dryness.

(4.0) T: Pine, citrus elements, slightly nutty, and a rich bready backbone. There is a sweet fruity finish to this that resembles cotton candy and/or watermelon – very good whatever it may be. Equal amounts of bitterness and dryness both in generous portions. This leans to the maltier side with that big bready taste presenting itself more as this warms.

(4.25) M: Medium bodied with a mild carbonation. Slick and oily with quite a clean texture for the most part.

(4.0) D: This is a great IPA and textbook for the style across the board.
