This is the beer that got me into IPA's and still one of my favorites. Unfortunatly the store where I live that used to carry it no longer does so it's a rare occasion that I get to enjoy this or any or the many fine brews from Speakeasy.
A: Very light yellow with a very thin white head but lots of sticky lacing that sticks to the glass all the way down. Lots of bubbles rushing to the top.
S: Very strong smell of piney hops. A little citrusy like lemon
T: A very bitter IPA. There is a noticable malt sweetness, but it stays in the background, the hops is the main focus. Leaves a very bitter aftertaste. Hopheads will love this.
M: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation, goes down very smooth with a dry finish. Alcohol is very well hidden.
D: A very strong solid IPA. If you love hops you will love this beer. Some people didn't like the lack of malt, but it's one of my favorite things about this beer. Keeps strong with hops, but not so strong that it's overbearing like a Double IPA.
