From the bottle onto a Sam Smith pint glass. About a mont old...
A - pale yellow with a billowing 3 fingers' width of white head that never fully dissipates, leaving behind an impressive lacing. I've never seen a better looking IPA.
S - Pine, grapefruit, citrusy...and not a hint of malt. Wow! This looks good already.
T - Starts with a bit of sweet camely malt and hops take over right away. But all through, there is a nice balance between the malt and the hops; both complementing but never overpowering each other. Very drinkable.
M - light bodied and sessionable. Perfect to the style.
Certainly one of the better choices in the world of ipas. Can't go wrong with this one....
