Bomber into standard pint.
A: pretty normal pour gets minimal head and it formed a very thin cap. Looks like the lacing might be alright though. Good reddish amber color, rye does not lie. Quite clear also.
S: yet another citrusy slightly grassy hop armoa heavy IPA. I must live in Oregon or something. A slightly sweet note on the nose and a bit of spice although very faint. The citrus leans toward orange in this one moreso than grapefruit like in most NWIPA.
T: He hops aren't as overbearing as on the nose, much more balanced than it smells. Starts with wash of flavor that matches the nose. But finishes with a bit more of thsat spice. Surprisingly clean finish on this. Normally I like a little lingering but the crispness does well to keep the heavy hopping at bay. What little lingering flavor there is, is slightly sweet and ever so slightly hopped. Pleasant.
M: the body is as expected. A little heavier than a pale ale but still nothing to make you reach for a spon. Minimal carbonation explains the lack of head and maybe the thickness. A few more bubbles would lighten it up into a sessionable summer brew.
O: good IPA, not amazing but by no means bad.
