Golden copper pour with bubbles galore. The head is a finger and a half thick, but the bubbles never stop rising from the bottom, making the beer look hazier than it really is. Good retention on the craterous head. Thick, sticky, crazy lace.
Very bready nose, with high pine scent and to a lesser degree, some citrus.
All malt on the front end and all pine on the back end. Simple, but good.
Fairly smooth and creamy for an IPA. Gentle sweetness early on that's somewhat trampled on by the malt with a bitter, oily finish. The hop oil coats your tongue and the faint citrus leaves a slight tartness. Despite moderate alcohol and high hops, it's very easy to drink and goes down smooth.
Another home run from Schlafly, one of my favorite brewers because just about everything is top notch at an affordable price. Only have a single, would like more of these.
