12oz bottle poured into a standard shaker pint. Thanks to shrek806 for providing the bottle in the Hometown BIF!
A: Pours a hazy orange and has an almost murky look to it. Sticky, purely white head fades pretty slowly and leaves a light lacing.
S: Primarily hops on the nose--mostly grassy and floral notes. Smells of some bitterness, some sweetness; not much from the malt evident.
T: Very refreshing; thirst quenching, even. Slightly different hop profile than is evident in the nose, this one has more citrus sweetness and the bitterness is more apparent. The malt flavor is pretty light, but provides an excellent base for displaying the hop flavors. Really grows on me over the course of the beer.
M: Carbonation is lighter than I would have expected, but it isn't too detrimental to the beer. Could be better, though.
D: Feels like a great food-pairing and summer beer, and could definitely drink a few of these. Glad to have tried it.
Tasty IPA. Would love to have access to this over the summer up here in WI. Also, just realized that this is 7.5%... so, so well hidden! Fantastic.
