330ml bottle, poured into a tester glass.

A: Bronze colour, clear, one finger head faded to tiny rim of film, minimal lacing.

S: More earthy thanwhat is the norm for an American IPA, the fruity notes were strawberry, also had some darkchocolate.

T: Strawberry, malts, molasses, slight dark chocolate. Well balanced, slightly boozy.

M: Slightly thick texture, coarse edge.

O: Less hoppy and fruity than other American IPAs, seemed to work though.

Clear pale body with a frothy white head and great lace.. A/T is sharp bitterness, pine, floral hops.. Slight sweet pale cracker malt.. Simple straight forward ipa.. Every ipa doesn't need flowers and spices and such to make them good.. This one is a great choice.
