A: Poured from the growler into a pint glass. Body is golden-orange with a small white head that leaves behind some lace.
S: Mild nose - some tea-like characteristics and some hops - but not very strong at all.
T: Interesting, as there's a lot going on, taste-wise. I get sweet malt up front, with some spices - I get cinnamon and nutmeg. Also citrusy hops that lead me to think of oranges and orange oil; finishes with lemony bitterness. Lingering taste, however, is of resiny pine and pine needle bitterness, leaving you with more of an IPA impression than you get at first blush.
M: Call it medium in heft, carbonation was appropriate, didn't add to or detract from the overall experience.
O: Good, but not great. The spiciness is a little odd in an IPA, but overall it worked, even if it meant the beer wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
Serving type: growler
