12oz bottle dated 4/17/2012 from awesome BA trader duffmanohyea02.
Nice honey-yellow elixir poured into SA glass. Tight, small bubbled white head, two-fingers, down to, and remains solid, one finger head. Thick lacing through tasting. Hop heads dream.
Aroma of pine, grapefruit, citrus zest, mild malt sugars.
Wow, smooth bitterness envelopes the tongue, not crazy bomb, with a slight (emphasis on "slight") balance, but the hops come through--grapefruit, tangy lemon/orange, solid throughout draught. Hoppy aftertaste from front to back makes the tongue sweep, capping the flavor.
Medium body, well carbonated, zest but not crazy tang. Alcohol peeks through at end. Nicely done.
This brewery continues to shine. This is a nice go to IPA if available and well represents its style. For me, rated just below (barely) my staples: White Rajah, Headhunter and Sculpin.
