A- golden/honey in color. strange, ive had this both clear and w/ hop haze out the ying yang. did they change the recipe or brewing techs? lacing is the best ive ever seen, spider-web all the way through. i think this comes from the amount of wheat they use in this recipe...
S- resin, floral, pine, grapefruit, touch of candy sweet malt coming through, but mostly hops. not really as pungent as i remember a few years back...
T/M- bitter hops really hit with a nice punch on both the front and back end. very clean, mouthfeel is really smooth with a mild caramel body. hops dominate in a balanced good way...
D- if you like hops this is your ipa. drinkability is awesome for 7%abv. almost session like. not too heavy, but not light either. have no problem achieving my hop fix with this bad boy...
