Poured froma 12oz bottle to a standard 12oz pub mug.
Deep amber w/ a rocky 1 inch head, ample lacing present.
Smells like pure cascade hop; like getting hit in the face w/ a burlap bag full of fresh cascade!
Taste is exceptionally balanced cascade hop and caramel malts. Ithica did not skimp on ingredients w/ this one. As it warms more malt characteristics come through beyong the dominant hop profile. Very smooth and silky quality in the finish. I'm falling in love w/ it, the fourth bottle is just as good as the first.
This beer would be admired by those who enjoy the american IPA variety as well as those who like a good classic american strong ale. This beer represents a nice balance between the two characteristics in my humble opinion.
