12oz bottle picked up as a single. ive overlooked this decently local IPA for some time now. drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.
A- a hearty pour yields a dark copper colored body with a slight haze to it. on top sits a small bright white head that lasts for an acceptable amount of time before falling. small spots of lacing are left behind.
S- the nose is hoppier than i was expecting. lots of pine and citric (lemon, grapefruit, and a touch of orange) hops. a little bit of floral notes also. caramel malt moves in towards the back of the nose and adds some sweetness.
T- the taste starts out with the caramel malts that i could smell which lays a foundation of sweetness to try and balance the hops that are coming next. mostly grapefruit and pine, with some lemon notes as well.
M- the body is a solid medium. the carbonation level seems about right. no real warming from the alcohol.
O- this is a pretty solid IPA for an affordable price. i think a sixer is $8.99. ill have to work this into rotation when times are tight. i dont know why ive put off trying this for so long.
