I don't think I have had this beer since my review in 2007. Been a while and it was on for growler fills.
A: Fairly clear light copper color. Poured with a finger of billowy white head with excellent lacing. A great lookiing IPA.
S: The nose lacks a little. Little bit of a piney citrus note. The malt is there as well but a bit subdued. I remember having this years ago and thinking it was super fragrant.
T: Very well balanced. Not that much bitterness. Not that much else besides just a touch of a piney hop note. Finishes super clean.
M: Nice light mouthfeel. Lacks that slightly syrupy quality I look for in a IPA. A touch creamy. Great carbonation for a growler.
D: This is a classic. Something I would get on tap at home for a daily drinker. Really nice. Not quite sessionable but I would session it.
