12oz longneck
A) Pours with a finger thick head. Settles to a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear copper body.
S) Piney. A bit musky but sweet.
T) A balanced profile. Hops and malts. Spruce. Buttery. Caramel. Piney aftertaste with malty sweetness.
M) Medium-light body. Creamy.
O) A delicious brew. I wish I would have bought more than a single. Ugh.

On tap at Busboys and Poets in DC poured in a pint glass
Good clear orange amber color with fine lacing
Full well balanced taste with a mainly piney hop aftertaste
Very good for a session IPA

I sampled this beer twice at two different bars to ensure the first tasting was not a bad keg.

A. Pale, semi-clear (only had a small sample. Appearance was hard to judge.)

S. No noticeable aromas. Hop aromas was seriously subdued

T. A faint hint of bitterness. No pronounced hop or malt flavours. There was a weird flavour, perhaps a bit phenolic, in the middle of the taste. Tastes like poorly-made extract homebrew.

M. Thin, watery body.

O. Awful beer. This was supposed to be an "IPA", but there is no pronounced hop aroma or flavours. The benchmark for session IPAs is the Founders All Day IPA. This beer comes NO WHERE near the Founders All Day IPA.
