APPEARANCE: Pours a beautiful, slightly hazy, dark amber with a thick two finger head with great lacing that you have to wash off.
AROMA: A noticeably piney and citrusy hop scent permeate this beer.
FLAVOR: A definitely noticeable strong grapefruit, citrus hop note with a lighter piney hop taste. A great sweet, honey, caramel, malt flavor to finish, with some continued hop bitterness. Flavors definitely pop more as this warms, ideal temp is 45-50º per the bottle.
PALATE: A great IPA, with noticeably piney hop bitterness, balanced perfectly with a nice sweet malt note and dry finish. It's no wonder this brew has won many awards.
MOUTH FEEL: A light to medium carbonation, very creamy feeling.
NOTES: An enjoyable light to medium carbonated 7.0% ABV IPA that keeps you coming back. The alcohol is hidden until it's too late, and the beer is smooth as can be.
Serving type: bottle
