22oz bomber into Harpoon IPA imperial pint glass.
A - Looks like a summer/baseball beer w/just a hint of cloudiness (depending on how much yeast you leave behind in the bottle); yellow/orange, w/a foamy head. Looks very *drinkable*!
S - Just a hint of clove and a nice hop scent
T - A bit of banana & clove off the top, but just a bit. This dissipates to a lemon-y hoppiness, which is done quite well, similar to a Weihenstephaner or a Munchener Helles for me; not very pronounced but just enough to make itself known. Finishes quite dry with a lingering hint of clove & hops and a bit of alcohol as well as a warning if you decide to slam it.
M - Prickly on the tongue - this is nicely carbonated, definitely towards the summer-beer end of things which makes it very thirst-quenching. That 7.7%, especially in a bomber, could sneak up on you as a result.
D - Extremely high; am drinking this on a warm-ish day in NC and it is just the thing. This is a lawn-mower type beer, especially if you like getting a healthy buzz on after mowing said lawn.
This is not my type of beer (and it sat in my fridge for a while before I tried it), but gotta say, this is a keeper and will definitely pick this one up again.

a: bright light golden color

s: fruity and sweet.

t: Refreshing. I can definitely taste some spices in here, coriander comes to mind.

m: very dry, carbonated, and light.

d: pretty high. I'm a big fan of saisons because of their complexity and fairly easy drinkability.
