Bought a 12 oz bottle nearly straight off the truck. Poured into an English pub glass.
A - Nothing too special here. Did an agressive pour and there wasn't too much of a head, what was there was white. Large bubbles formed throughout the glass. Crystal clear straw color, unlike what I read in the Bros review, maybe they filter now? The head leaves behind lacing. All-in-all, a pretty average appearance.
S - There isn't much of a hop aroma here for an IPA. What's there is a good citrusy smell, but it is a one dimensional. This beer could really benefit from dry hopping.
T - The taste luckily is greater than the smell and more complex. There is a moderate citrus, floral hopiness that is balanced out by a sweet pale malt. I am a person who likes sweeter beers and I think that this one has just a tad bit too much sweetness.
M - The mouthfeel is near exceptional in my mind. The carbonation is slightly tingly, yet goes down smooth. The sweetness from the malt prevents the palate from drying out and there is an oily feeling from the hops that remains too.
O - A beautifully made beer. Just wish there were more aromatic hops is all. It is a great beer on a hot day like today. I think everybody can enjoy this beer. As terrible as it sounds, I think you could drink this beer from the bottle and it wouldn't hurt the experience too much. This could be my go to beer where I can't decant.
