Poured into a pint glass. The appearance has a bright orange, terra cotta, straw yellow hue with a white 2 finger head that leaves a nice lacing throughout the drink. I get hops, pine, some sweet toasted malts, caramel/toffee hint, and some small spice in the nose, some citrus I think.
This brew has medium body, and right up front I get a really balanced, hop and pineapple/grapefuit, pine, malts, grain, grass, bread; which is followed by a very well balanced sweet toasted malt and toffee ending. I love this aftertaste, get that mellow toffee and sweetness from the malts, and I still have a good bitterness from the hops. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. This isn't as hopbombish as say Hopslam or even crooked tree, less of that hoppy, grassy freshness, and a more elegently balanced take on an American IPA. AGAIN, wondferfully balanced brew. Well done. Could drink this all night!!!!
Would be interested to see if they do a double/imperial take on this IPA, I bet it'd be really good!
