Pours a beautiful golden color with a two-finger thick head that rapidly dissipates. Thus, lace develops quickly but remains thick and persistent. Aroma, piney, hoppy, with equal parts citrus.
Palatte greeted with a blast of bitter piney hops with a distant hint of straw! Hop flavor is strong and lasting but does not over-linger. A background citrus flavor is brief at onset but drowned by hops within moments. Overall, a very bitter IPA.
Mouthfeel of moderate wieght. Drinkability smooth, light, refreshing. This is a fine -- albeit heavy-hopped -- IPA. The "heavy hop" works well here and is balanced by the beer's refreshing drinkability. A great summer evening brew.

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
