22 oz bomber pours a hazed gold color with a stubborn white head that sticks around for a long while and leaves sheets of lace. I cant believe I have not reviewed this one before.
Nose is piney hops and bready, crackery malt. More of an 'old school' hop aroma than the newer, tropical IPAs. Still smells like a beer that can stand the test of time.
Ohhh, yea...thats nice. This beer never fails to impress. Soft malts are so understated and just honeyed graham cracker deliciousness. Hops have a modest bitterness but plenty of leafy-pine hoppiness. BR did this one up right when they designed this recipe. Solid IPA that is drinkable by the gallon.
