Bottled on 9/30/2011, drunk on 10/17/2011. Poured from 500 mL bottle into a snifter.
A- Dark gold to light copper in color. Poured a creamy white head which reduced to a thin film of white bubbles. Brilliant clarity.
S- Hops! Citrus bursts out, lots of grapefruit. Little bit of alcohol noticeable.
T- The same citrusy hops are present as is some grass. However, there is a noticeable malt character with a somewhat bready taste (not sweet). Tastes slightly boozy.
M- Although there is high hop bitterness, the beer is full and creamy. Medium-high carbonation tingles nicely.
O- A complex and well balanced IPA. Really appreciate the malt character and how it keeps the hops from overwhelming the beer.
