Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a snifter. This beer was a gift from my brother Brian.
The beer pours a bright clear copper hue with creamy eggshell white head of 2 cm that fades to a wispy surface layer.
Aroma is grassy and grapefruit rind citrus. Lots of hops on the nose with only a little bit of biscuity malt on the balance.
First sip reveals a smooth texture and slightly sticky body that coats my palate on each sip. Carbonation is fine and tingly, adding to the sensation as I swallow a mouthful.
Finish is very dry.
Flavor starts with just a bit of caramel but moves to all hops quickly after that. I get some citrus rind and grass and a fairly astringent finish. No doubt this is an American IPA.
I dont detect any of the booze that I thought may show through at 7.1%.
Overall this is very drinkable and solid IPA. I would try this one again if I was looking for a hop fix without completely blasting my tongue off.
